I like Futura





Futura is definitely underrated. I also like Century Gothic (as a Futura stand in), Perpetua, Goudy OldStyle, and Garamond. Rage Italic is a nice script font that gets little attention these days too.. Sans Serif fonts are my favorites, but it's very hard to find one that doesn't look like a Futura knock off or one that doesn't have the spacing all mucked up. Futura is definitely perfection IMO..

EDIT: I also remembered seeing this alternative.



I like using Futura when I'm writing small columns of an article. It's easier on the eye, imo.

Helvetica is good too. You mostly see them written on car dealerships to invoke friendliness.

Comic sans.

Nah, just kidding.
My fave sans serif at the moment is Avant Garde / Avant Garde ITC. It's extrmeely pleasing to look at for me. I'll admit, I didn't pay at all for it because of the ludicrous asking price and because I'm a poor teenager, but as a typography afficianado the stylish looking glyphs and the awesome alternates are pretty much my favorite things ever. It's pretty much my go to for typography editing.

Though for normal stuff; i.e. simply typing in word or excel I like the default, Calibri.



Avant Garde is great enough to stand alone and printed big on a shirt.

I entered this on a deviant art t shirt contest:


The contest got so corrupted. No one won the contest. They couldn't tally or verify the votes.

Lol, who uses Times New Roman outside of when you have to print something? haha It's one of the worst fonts out there <.<
I'm okay with Calibri, cause it's really nice for the eyes, round characters and not many sharp edges around the characters like Times New Roman, Arial and others.

Comic Sans, because everyone else hates it but me. I'm quite fond of typing in a hand made lemonade stand sort of way.

Obvious trolling... >.>

I'm surprised nobody got out the pitchforks for the whole arial vs. helvetica debate.

Sadly, I am not. I'm a fan of childish, hand written fonts. My writing is unusually blocky, which is why I admire all the curviness of Comic Sans.
