Have you ever been in that spot of the project where the brainstorming has ended and now you are about to choose the right type for it? Well, stress no more friend! use this fun font-chooser advisor !
Designer Julian Hansen offers a clever and helpful flowchart that helps both typography nerds and neophytes find the right font.
It’s fun to follow around the thoughts and threads of Hansen’s flowchart. Start with the big button in the middle, choose your project, and fly around the chart, arriving eventually at a font that’s either inspired or the perfect choice for your tired tastes, depending on your answers. Those with an eye for kerning and the like may just get a laugh or two from the picks, but for those of us who have no idea what we’re seeing in lettering most of the time, there’s some real value in being asked “How do the (words) Semi-Sans, Semi-Serif sound?” The English translation’s a bit stilted at times, but you’ll get the joke, or advice, in most cases.
