    I took this a couple weeks ago while out by the local strip pits. Summer in the midwest, going to strip pits, listening to music, and some light drinking. *sigh* Always a good time.

  • What's your favorite font?

    Mine has to be Segoe UI Light, or at least from an all-around view.. It's so clean!
    For writing, it's Helvetica.

    My favorite font is whichever one(s) work(s) best for the project at hand.

      My go-to font is Univers. But, I wouldn't say I have a "favorite".

              Helvetica.

              Every once in a while I come across a printed piece using Helvetica that is so well designed that it is almost like the first time I ever saw it. I was starting about just about the time Helvetica was introduced. I loved to use Hairline Helveica as a large contrasting element. Before Hairline Helve was available, I had it hand lettered by a guy at GM Photographic.

              The Univers family runs a very close second for me.

                I don't really have a favorite, but I do use Adobe Caslon a lot. Helvetica Neue, too.

                  I was big on Helvetica, but I've been leaning more towards Univers. I can't really say why. Both are beautiful fonts. There is just something about Univers that seems more "right" to me than Helvetica.

                    Old-timer here -- been reaching for Franklin Gothic since I was a kit playing with discarded type and a stamp pad, keeping close by my Mom's side as the presses ran the next room over. :-}

                    For serif body text lately I'm fond of the Warnock Pro that came as a registration bonus with Acrobat or some such.

                              All of us Helevetica lovers have to take our hats off when Futura is mentioned. Fut is Helve's grandpa.
