What font do you FEEL like the most?
0

Do you ever phisically feel like a certain font? If so, what font would you like to date, marry, have coffee with, have a one night stand with, etc?

I am Helvetica. I would really love to meet Handlettering for casual Thai food dinner. Who knows what could happen next?

I am Gill Sans. Curvy, old fashioned, misunderstood and Welsh. Who else should I want to get into bed with for cuddles and cups of tea other than with Perpetua?

David, there are laws against that sort of thing.

I am Thesis. I love myself, I think I’m grand, I go to the movies just to hold my hand.

As much as I want to be Optima, I fear I am more Cooper Black. Sigh.

You have to work through those issues of being Cooper black to be the Optima you want to be. GO FOR IT.

I don’t think issues are the problem as much as cheese bagels! :-)

I’m a Bureau Grotesque Three Seven (Grotesque No. 9). I fantasize about being Trajan, though.

Caslon. I can stand on my own, as befits an English gentleman, but I long to be locked in a chase with that French babe Claudine Garamond. She’s soooo pretty.

I would really like to see Caslon and Garamond getting along. Talk about ups and downs. I can see arguments over dinner, but potentially great make up sex. Ahhh the cycle continues.

The offspring of their affair is visible in Rod McDonald’s “Laurentian”.

Sometimes I act a bit Trajan, but I’m really more Scala Sans.

I’m just happy that I’ve found a good eclectic but functional serif to settle down with.

It’s funny this topic came up. Just a couple of days ago I wrote this on a napkin: “I feel like a different font every day.” There you have my answer…

Dammit! I would like to be a nice font but right now I feel more like a ridiculous dingbat. Maybe tomorrow…

I feel schizophrenic like an old stack of ATF specimen cards, old, tattered, and green.

I feel exactly like this:



Tall, sharp and to the point.
A little fancy, brand new, but
very proper (ahem).
