Favorite Fonts, Anyone??

post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 
I have really been getting into different typefaces over the last 6-8 months, and have kind of become a semi-knowledgeable dork on the subject (much to chagrin of my fiance)... I really like Neutraface #2 right now, especially the text version. I like Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk a lot and wish I could afford to get it...

i am not knowledgable on the subject whatsoever but have recently become interested in them as well. to display my ignorance, my favourite font at the moment is century gothic. do you, by chance, know the main fonts used by fantastic man mag?

Both very good fonts and two of my favorites as well. Akzidenz is a hundred plus years old, but still looks great. Kind of the forerunner of all the 20C sans-serifs.

Wasn't familiar with the mag, but after googling, it appears to be engravers gothic http://typophile.com/node/41977

Yeah, my roommate was a graphic designer at Gallup for about 4 years and their logo is Akzidenz, so I have really grown to appreciate it!

I use Caslon Pro combined with Gotham or Verlag for most documents. A great combination of old and new.

Verlag and Caslon Pro are solid...

I kind of like Helvetica myself, although I'm reluctant to use it much because of document sharing/email where others may not have Helv loaded. I'll look up some of the other fonts you gents mentioned.

I really like Scala, but I don't want to pay $730 for it...

Very nice font. You can find it all over the place for free.
