ITT: Post your favourite font,...

ITT: Post your favourite font, preferably one that most people won't have heard of (ie, no futura, helvetica, etc.) Can be a body font, display, etc, whatever.

Mine is Dekar, it's not great at legibility but it looks damn nice for titling.

I have a lot of favorites but right now I'm loving Didot. Not for everyone but in the right context it can be gorgeous.

It's like a badly done copy of Vogue's typeface, but still, I had some projects where I could use it, and turned out pretty "okay"-ish, but ended up with different fonts after all.

i like this one, it's got that vogue-esque look to it (it's similar to didot in that the thick lines and thin lines have a much bigger difference than in most fonts) but it's curvier that didot. great for magazine covers and classy titles.

>>150619no need to be so...
no need to be so abrasive, especially when you're wrong. pic related is an example of a modern serif as well, it just refers to serif fonts that are not designed to work in a printing press but for computer display/modern printing. I was talking specifically about the shapes of the letter forms which are specific to a few fonts, including didot.

not to mention that group is called Didones, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Didone_(typography)

Take five seconds to google it, man.


Yes, Didone is another word for it. But most people who work with type will refer to serifs as old style/humanist, transitional, modern, and slab/egyptian. Calling a font vogue-like makes you sound uneducated. Learn the proper words for typography.


Also, the font you posted is not a modern serif. Extreme contrasts between thick and thin, thin serifs, and a vertical stress make a modern serif.

I learned those types of serifs as Humane, Garalde, RĂ©ale and Didone (and Slab).

I almost bought into what you were saying, but then you crushed the discussion by being a jerk.
