Font Talk

More bumming around stuff.

Saw this video, got the link from my usual supplier of useless knowledge, kottke.org



From Goodie Bag.

Incidentally, I love Trajan. Whenever I do graphic layout projects (minor sideline), I will most of the time end up using this font, and a few other favorites, somewhere on the image or newsletter. I have never noticed though that it's widely used in movies until I saw this clip.  Current font favorites include Helvetica Neue Light and Ultralight (that's 3 links for you, right there), Futura, Pristina, and Scriptina (this one's a free download link).  When I was still using a PC, I changed my default Word font from Times New Roman to Calibri.  I also had a Copperplate phase and a Footlight MT Light phase but I'm over them now.  Haha.  Here's a sample of one of my projects (this one was pro bono, of course).
