I like Gill Sans and Helvetica too.
Gill Sans Light actually.
The Helvetica and Helvetica Neue families are my favourite for everyday use. It's just a wonderfully designed font.
I really cannot stand Cambria, though. That's got to be one of the ugliest fonts I've ever come across...
Gotta love Comic Sans and Georgia.
I like these ...
Good ole dependable Helvetica for sure.
Don't you mean typeface?
Jokes aside, I'm partial towards Gotham, Univers and ITC Officina
Trade Gothic Bold Condensed 20. Forceful and graceful at the same time. I also love Akzidenz Grotesk and Gotham.
Helvetica as well. Gary Hustwit's film is a really great mini-documentary/open love-letter to the font. Good music by El Ten Eleven in there as well.
My second favorite is probably Clearview, one of the newer highway sign fonts.
Back in my DTP days, I was always fondest of (for serif) Bookman and (sans serif) Eurostile. Headlines, preferably, Cooper Black.
[Edit: I should post a pic of what I'm discussing:
Almost anything sans serif. Serif's hurt my eyes.
I'll take your Helvetica and raise you:
always been a century gothic fan. helvetica neue a close second.
I like The Economist one a lot. However, despite me e-mailing the creators and The Economist themselves, I've not been able to find / buy one.
I like the ultralight stuff too. While its good for online work, it plays tricks with actual print work. For instance white ultralight type on black background can get some color shift in the details.
Helvetica/Neue I love, but it is frightfully common. I love sans-serif type.
A close second and third are Myriad Pro and Univers, respectfully,
...and OP, you used Arial, not Helvetica, in your sample. Arial is a bastardized Microsoft version of Helvetica. Very similar, but so very different.
You guys think there's all that much of a difference between these sans-serif Grotesk type fonts/typefaces?
Mouse loves Verdana..
I do. Each has it's own look, and it's own use.
And did you post Arial intentionally instead of Helvetica or not? I'm just curious.
