What's Your Type?


This is a fun little exercise, especially for those of you in the advertising and graphic design business.  Fast Company has a link to a stylish interactive that features a headless analyst with an accent like a good parody of Sigmund Freud.  He'll ask you four questions (they're fun and cleverly-put) and then he'll tell you about "your" typeface. 

Here's mine:  "Archer Hairline is a modern typeface with a straightforward appearance, but one that has tiny outbreaks of elegance and tiny dots of emotion, only apparent on closer examination.  If you are someone who is outwardly composed, but will occasionally run into the bathroom for a quick laugh or a quiet cry before emerging to the world outwardly composed again, then Archer Hairline is your type." 

This isn't completely true, of course.  Sometimes I cry in the car.  Try it and tell me yours.
