TGIF: Font conference November 14, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff.

Thanks to Metrolingua for posting this video. It cracked me up! The video is an excellent personification of the fonts we know and love. I just want to know why Rage Italic is German…

Oh my gosh, that was so funny. I think my favorite was the redneck Arial Narrow? So funny. And I think I was Century Gothic in high school.

Arial Narrow was funny, but I loved Baskerville Old Face and Bookman Old Style the best.

“Wingdings was bad enough. I’m sick of pandering to these artsy farts.”

“When I was just a four point, a font was a font. Letters were good enough for us – not these damn doodlings. I won’t stand for it!”
“You won’t stand for it? You can’t stand for it, you shriveled bastard. You’d probably break a leg.”

Ha!!! Too funny!
