Your font horoscope

As a writer and designer, I tend to spend a lot of time obsessing over font style. There are some styles that I prefer over others, and some styles that should just be eliminated from existence immediately. Type faces can range from crazy eccentric to super dull, and the font you use on a day to day basis can say a lot about you as a person. Here are some different type faces, and what they could potentially say about you.

*Disclaimer* If this offends you users of fonts that I despise, my deepest condolences.

You’re a classic guy/gal. You like to keep things simple and clean, and you have a great eye for detail. You like consistency in your life, and change is a very terrifying yet exciting idea. You don’t like to stand out too much, but you always need your voice to be heard.

You’re bold. You feel the need to stand out and be noticed. You’re a risk taker, and you’re always the friend who tells your other friends “YOLO”. You probably yell a lot when talking and don’t even notice. (ie, YOU TALK IN CAP LOCKS!)

You’re tacky and I hate you.

You are wise beyond your years. Some might say you know too much. You’re a old soul, and like to show your brilliance through your typeface. You believe that you are far superior to others (Comic Sans users) and you often give them the one eyebrow look when they are talking to you.

You’re just here to have a good time. You’re goofy and you’re always trying to get laughs out of people (even though most times it’s a pity laugh.) You’ve probably watched more episodes of Hannah Montana than you would care to admit to.

Hello alien life form, I would like to communicate with you, but have no idea what the hell you are trying to say.

I hope you can gain some insight into who you are as a person from your font horoscope. I would like to leave you with my best piece of advice when it comes to choosing a font: NEVER choose Comic Sans.

What other fonts do you like to use, and what do you think they say about you?
