geeking out over fonts

there’s a small group of men that meet at my house every monday evening for Bible study. it always amazes me how conversations can so easily go from one thing to another so quickly. somehow last night spence, jon, and i got on our favorite fonts. yeah – fonts. that thing is, we really got into that conversation. the two other guys just looked at us like we were the biggest nerds in the world…and they’re engineers! seriously. and just because i know you want to know:

my favorite fonts right now:
helvetica neue (esp. light & ultra light)
century gothic

special shout out for helping me get to this point:
arial rounded mt bold
trebuchet

and let’s face it: everyoen has used comic sans in their life because they thought it was cool. many have realized that it’s not. mayeb today is your day to just let it go and move on.

    You are not alone. I have a serious font addiction. How else can you show your personality in your printed work? (Of course all school work is in Times or Courier… boring!)

    I’m loving FG Nina right now

    Myfonts.com has a monthly newsletter that highlights new foundries and designs. Sooooo dangerous!
