I like Calibri
"The Helvetica font is celebrating its 50th birthday today... "
So, do you have any font preferences for email, writing documents, IMs, etc.?
Personally, I'm liking Trebuchet MS for everything... looks nice
I like Calibri
As do I
All of the new fonts that come with Office 2007 and Vista are really nice imo.
I'm a Tahoma/Verdana fan myself, and prefer Bitstream Vera Sans/Deja Vu Sans on Linux.
The school uses Gill Sans MT and California FB for publications which aren't too bad either
Comic Sans MS, there was another one but I dont recall the name
Im very boring, I just use Arial for everything
Grrr, Comic Sans MS must die. Horrible, horrible font.Originally Posted by gecko
One of the things that is often forgotten is that there is a reason for serifs. They provide the eye with a line to follow, greatly aiding the reader who is either very good, or of low ability. Less so the average reader. The upshot is, that any "body text" should be in a seriffed font.
This is less important on screen, or in narrow columns. I had the misfortune to read a book by some trendy TV comic type who's publisher (or him) thought that a sans-serif 'looked cool'; it was 'king awful to read!
Agree 100%! My design for our school website was professional and based on a private school (I think it was Westminster or something) but then I was told that it must contain all our school colours (4 of them) and must use the Comic Sans MS font 'as it is friendly'...Originally Posted by Norphy
Regarding serif's - that only applies to printed text. If it is on screen Sans-serif is actually easier on the eyes (this was taught to me when I was at uni). But yes, publishers who try and be 'modern' by using sans-serif fonts in books are just wasting money - people won't buy difficult to read books.
I don't read that much printed material, but I have no problems with magazine articles printed in Sans serif fonts.
Its only porn mags that do sans-serif magazine articles isnt it? <g>
They do porn in magazines? 8O
Veranda, because it looks bigger than it is. It's saved me from many page limited uni assignments.
I like Palatino Linotype best.
that being said, I was told only last week that dyslexics find they can follow words and meanings written in comic sans better than most other fonts.
Still hate the nnnrrggghh
