Courier new used to be my favorite, specially bold. But now I don't have a favorite......I use Trebuchet MS sometimes, and rarely use times or arial any more then I have to. Helvetica Neue is the font used to create the adult swim cards....fun fun.

I must say... I find Verdana to be the most popular for use by me.

haha i posted at the same time you did and we both said the same things except i dont think you can have a boring personality for using verdana ;)

the other thing I find funny about fonts is the ways people pronounce it - for as long as I can remember i called arial "air-ree-al" not "are-ree-al"


oh forgive im bored *plum* here at work :D

Hehe, I love Century Gothic! As for downloadable fonts, I have to say that I love the Celtic fonts the most, though I don't actually use them too much.

musik: Yeah, the pronunciation thing is funny. I pronounce it air-ree-al as well. I also know some people that pronounce fonts as f-oh-nts but I say f-ah-nts.

I have about 280 fonts installed on my system from various things. I don't have a favorite font in particular, but I do have a favorite type of font... and that is the handwritten type fonts... the treefrog font in your example link is a good example of the kind of fonts I like (so I downloaded it ;) ) I also like script fonts (like cursive writing fonts).

I guess some of the fonts I use are handwriting type, but I never like cursive...maybe its because I never write in it myself.

I'm a 16 year old from Central New York. I like to waste away my day infront of this computer.

Good story eh? What was the new way of creating websites in photoshop? with slices?

well yeah with slices - i knew that before but i was a bit of a dodo and didnt know how to make it sit in the middle of the page instead of on the side - I have this major annoyance with websites that dont take up the whole page or at least sit in the middle when you open them in a full size window

oh what can I say im a weirdo :shock:


so are you in school or something?
