I'm new here, and not really sure where to post this. But here it is:
There's a lot of nice great fonts out there. Some have eternal life, some just live for a day :) but what about your all time favourite font? or if you prefer, you current favourite font? :)

Mine is Garamond. A classic i know :)

Grotesk CAPS just so clean and simple. Nice to use on slogans or taglines.

Vag Rounded is nice for funny and aimed for young costumers.

Eurostile black is nice and strong I like to use it for headers in a assignment.

Myriad Pro is great for different uses. Allot of half semi bold and regular text.

Doesn't matter what font d'you really have. What You can do with it.. matters most.
I like very standard Arial and Times New Roman :))) but In fact.. having a favourite font means put it everywhere..:)) that's soooo sad..


I like HERMES, but I used it only once..:)

The Hermes is nice. It's edgy yet classy at the same time. Kind of true regarding the put it everywhere :) It has it's good and bad. Good as in you create a style that you always follow and people can associate that to you.. Bad is that looks like you only have 1 style :) but, nevertheless.. designers are very versatile in terms of style.

Yeah, right. That's why the designer MAY HAVE a FAVORITE FONT and always DREAMING to use it somewhere, BUT... ONLY ONCE!

My favorite fond is Times New Roman. In this font characters are very clear.
