‘what is your favourite font,’ she asked me once. i looked at her for a while.
‘depends for what,’ i said cautiously.
‘what do you mean, it depends,’ she was puzzled, ‘don’t you just have a favourite font?’
and so i looked through my database of fonts.
and yes, i have a favourite font – for almost anything. you can guess, it is not Times New Roman. Or Comic Sans.
it is Trebuchet MS. it has elegance, and it has clarity, and it is easy to read on screen and in print. however small the print. it is functional.
of course, the Anglo-Saxon Runes is also my favourite. but it does not work always, and most people find it difficult to read.
yes. apparently, i put functionality before the looks. in more than fonts.
