I was the guest host for the Design Museum’s #FontSunday on Twitter yesterday which was an amazing experience. I picked the Type Dating Game inspired theme of ‘Fanciable Fonts’ and you all tweeted in your photos of the typefaces you would date (or ditch), along with witty observations and a bad typographic chatup line or two. Thank you to everybody, we even trended on Twitter above Kanye for a few hours, well done!
In the poetic words of Nicole @typographHer “Which typefaces turn you on? Do you find serifs seductive? Or does sans stimulate and excite you? Which fonts do you fancy? I certainly wouldn’t kick @DaltonMaag’s King Caslon out of bed—this ampersand is pure delight! Thankfully typography polygamy is encouraged.”
Here are a few of your fanciable fonts…
