Typefaces for me (by Hunch).

September 8, 2010 at 8:37 pm Leave a comment

One of my latest online additions is Hunch.com, a website that provides “a great recommendation to address your choice, problem, or dilemma, on tens of thousands of topics” after you answer a bunch of fun multiple choice questions about your preferences, experiences, and habits.

One set of recommendations that Hunch made for me – with surprising accuracy, in my opinion – was for typefaces. The following represent the top five from my personalized list of ten:

1. Georgia, already the basis for my [under construction] portfolio website
2. Bodoni
3. Agenda
4. Century Gothic, the most efficient font when it comes to ink usage
5. Albertina

September 8’s daily design idea is the form of the letters within a word also gives meaning to that word. What do your font choices say about you? And what do your other choices say about your typeface preferences? If you’re not sure, just ask Hunch.
