tickled tuesday: fonts


If you aren't a graphic designer you may not enjoy today's Tickled Tuesday, Font Edition as much as I did. Mike passed this on to me last Friday and I laughed my butt off. Yes it's all about fonts and typography. The awesomesauce that is cracked.com has put together this great entry all about my beloved fonts. I have a strong passion for typography so this was right up my alley. That being said yes, I do hate Comic Sans, with a passion as well as many of the other fonts they've listed. So here goes, sit back and enjoy FONTS CRACKED.COM STYLE

If fonts aren't your style I'm sorry. I'll try harder in two weeks to come up with something more universal for us all. Why two weeks? I'm going on vacation this Friday for an entire week and I can't wait. Sorry to leave you all dangling but with the bounty of awesome blogs I know you won't be bored at all.
Pin It!

That link is funny! I think Papyrus takes the cake for my least favorite font, followed closely by Comic Sans. I downloaded a free blog header and it was originally written in Papyrus. I think I've eradicated it from my blog, but it's a tricky font so I can't be sure...

That was awesome! JT is big into fonts too...working in printing and all that. I'll have him read it!

OMG. Now I'm so nervous that I've made some sort of terrible font error in my blog designs. I need to read those rules again and go check!

That was so fantastical!! I really do hate Comic Sans...unless of course I'm reading a comic book. And while I used to use Courier a lot because I thought it looked cool, I have come full-circle and now just wish to leave everything in Times New Roman because it's just easier. Although, quite honestly, I don't think about it much these days. So, thank you for making me think about something that I take for granted ALL OF THE TIME. ;) I hate that you're going on vacation right as I emerge from my homeowner's coma...but I understand. Have you got some awesomeness lined up for us? ;)

This really has nothing to do with fonts...because I have a bone to pick with you. See it was you that first told me about peanut butter Oreos. Well, I've been looking for them ever since and I finally found them today. Now my diet is out the window and I'm getting fatter as we speak. I blame you entirely! In fact, when I took my first delicious bite I said "Damn you Kelly!"

I absolutely love fonts - I constantly experiment with them when I make worksheets and what not (I'm a teacher) - and I HATE that people still use Times! BOR-ING.
