  • 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.

                                If you have black shapes with white outlines, that could be a problem if not dealt with properly. If you expand a black shape with a white outline, the black fill shape will be half under the white line....
