what are your favourite fonts?
and why do you like them? which elements do you find particularly aesthetic? what is your typographic identity?

some of my obsessions :

ITC RONDA
BODEGA SANS (mcdonalds uses this)
BINARY (by mauricio reyes, used in sydney olympics!)
ROTIS SEMI SERIF
MYRIAD CONDENSED
typefaces designed by M/M
TORONTO SUBWAY
DIN
GILL SANS
APPLE GARAMOND
FUTURA
OPTIMA
VAG ROUNDED (innit the font that macs have on their keyboards?)
TRAJAN
SERPENTINE
...

overall i like fonts that have a systemic structure that combines both geometric / symmetric / prime and chaotic / asymmetric elements but look very proportionally balanced and geometrically, proportionally hierarchical.. so every chaotic looking element / ornament functions effectively in terms of geometry and proportion as a whole.. an abstract at once orderly superstructure! im still figuring out the means to pursue it further.. but i was wondering which typefaces do you like? and which particular elements keep you hooked?

have a nice day
