My name is Nadia. I’m a graphic designer, digital illustrator, and type enthusiast. Over the past few years, while I’ve gone through my graphic design training, I’ve found a few typefaces that really speak to me. This is my open love letter to my favorite fonts.
I love you and your curves. You are so fun and playful, yet professional. Your serifs give you more of a classy look, but your curves show you like to have a good time. I love you, Elephant. You are my favorite typeface.
I don’t think you’re grotesque at all. I think you’re clean, kind, and sophisticated. You work so well for so many things. I love seeing you in my graphic design professor’s presentations, and I also love seeing you on random posters. I think you’re beautiful, Brandon Grotesque. Don’t ever let anyone bring you down.
Where do I even begin with you? I find you so magnificent that I did an entire project on you. You’re a wonderful, classic, and sophisticated typeface. You’re so cool that the Declaration of Independence was typed in your font. What other type gets to say that? None. You’re awesome, Caslon. You get a gold star in my book.
Are you shocked that you made it on here? Did you think you were too mainstream to get some love? Don’t worry, Cooper Black. I still appreciate you.
My favorite game is “Will I See Cooper Black Today?” and the answer is always yes. Whether you know it or not, I think about you all the time. I constantly see you. I’m constantly looking for you. I even have you hung up on my wall. Cooper Black, you’re a gem. You’re so quirky with your little O’s. You’re not like other fonts.
Every typeface is a beautiful typeface. They’re all special in their own way and work well in a variety of things. I am so grateful for type and graphic design. Take a moment to appreciate the type you see on a daily basis (unless it’s Comic Sans - she’s grounded.)
