Love Affair with Fonts
A few months ago, some friends of mine challenged me to a duel (but there were three of us, so…a trial?) of words. You can find Whisper2Scream’s original post here, LittleLearner’s perspective on his post here and my response to his post here.
While waiting for inspiration, I started fooling around with fonts to see if that would help. What a colorless existence this has been; I never knew what was missing until now. Centaur. Harrington. Vijaya. Oh, how I love you.
Have you ever stared deep into the eyes of your fonts and let them speak for themselves? We do our fonts a disservice, ignoring their beauty. We go back time and again to that cheating dilettante, that streetwalker of fonts, Times New Roman.
Gaze at your fonts. Listen to your fonts. Find a new love. A font dedicated to you, to your passion.
Here’s what the other beautiful fonts said to me:
Take time to get to know your fonts. I, for one, plan to invest time in this relationship. Someday, they’ll be writing my obituary.
