    Default Design nerds talk about Futura...

    Interesting article (to type-nerds like myself).
    I'm just wondering what Chantry will have to say.
    (If he's not still banned from that site).

    that site is one that I feel like I *should* want to read, but it's so unbearably boring that I rarely check it.
    the one where Art went all spastic is classic, however.

    Futura is my all time favorite typeface. I used it on my personal site and I'll use it whenever I think I can get away with it. I love the F and the O particularly.

    I read that book 'The elements of typographic style'. it gave me a greater respect for people who spaz out about type, but at the same time I wanted to put a gun to my head by the time I had finished it. I did learn quite a bit from it though so it was worth the investment of time.

    hmm. Can't find it. Their search-thing appears to be broke.

    Being a type nerd... I appreciate when type has meaning (be it history or otherwise). But, let's face it, having a meaning behind the type, other then readability, is really just to please yourself, and other desgners. Clients rarely give a shit, and don't want to sit and listen to you explain the history behind Baskerville, or Goudy, or Futura, or Universe...........

    Or maybe I've just worked at a sign shop too long?
