For some reason I can only use it for display purposes, I think it looks terrible as a body font.

I agree with this to some level, one of my favorites, but only because of the "Next" variant by Berthold foundry which is more streamlined and with less funky / with less inconsistent 'grotesque' type accents, making it a better body face.

Reddit spacing? Is it summer where you're at? It came from /fit/.
>>
>>326965
It came from mobile-posting because one can't see shit on a tiny display, which is associated with samefagging or being an underage,
it came from being an attention whore who shit on the place's culture because they can't be fucked to search and attach a picture instead which makes enterfags essentially CAPSLOCK abusers or smileyfags of 2017,
and from bloated college papers.

I really love Akkurat, but no more than 4 weights/variants ever came out. For instance, Black weight was scheduled to be released back in 2013.

Slight derailing - does anyone know the name of this typeface? No font identifier site has come up with it yet :( or anything similar..
>>
>>327091
This is my goto as well.
The version I have is a pain in the arse to use though as they are not set up as a proper family, so have to manually change to bold and italics. Maybe one day i'll get around to fixing it -.-

I fucking love Helvetica and I will always love it. Own a company and bought a commercial license for it to use in advertisements. Commercial pricing for fonts is absolutely bullshit expensive and I will never understand why.
>>
Where do you guys get your non-ripped versions of font? Surely you guys aren't spending the $200+ per typeface, are you?
>>
Futura. I've been making a lot of Supreme rip offs and homages lately
>>
>>327174
You could always design your own :^)
>>
It would be Bodoni, but that shit is hella expensive. So Playfair Display for me.

can someone get me a copy of Helvetica Regular? thanks

can u give me a link to that font my good sir?

PROBABLY INTERSTATE OR KNOCKOUT THEY ARE REALLY GOOD.

Font prices are nothing compared to some stock photo prices, and the value is immeasurably higher.
>>
>>326838
Junicode. It unironically hurts my eyes to read sites like Wikipedia in sans serif, and I find Junicode provides the stimulation my eyes need and supports enough different kinds of weird letters, so I can use it as a starter for ideas I'm trying out. It never hinders me by not supporting certain ligatures or diacritics.

I'm currently using Acephimere and it looks really nice
>>
>>327382
nice. interstate is cool, it's a bit of a smelly typeface though. like you straight away know you're looking at interstate.

Hey guys, can you help me identify that font? (Sorry about the low res pic, I don't have my scanner right now)

I just started studying calligraphy. I bought a pilot parallel pen and it came with some paper explaining the basics. I like this font but I can't find its exact name on internet.

For a modern and clean look, I use Roboto. If I need to fo fancier I use Rockwell-donthitmeplz!
>>
>>326838

Currently doing a lot of UI Design for Android devices so I'm leaning much more towards Roboto.

This is called a "blackletter" font. There's no official version of it, there are hundreds of variations, the only commonality is using a bladed pen to write it.

I fucking really loved Acherus Grotesque when it came out but I'm a fan of Acre medium. I'm a freefag.

Being a codefag I love monospaced fonts. They feel good. Does anyone have some recommendation for this ?
>>
>>329031
To code Fira Code is one of my favorites, but there's a paid one that is great called Operator Mono, it's worth checking out

Maybe you mean you fell in love with it as soon as you became aware of different types.
>>
>>326838
I’ve been really dodging dynamic typefaces recently. For example, one called ZigZag. It changes between different inflections, I’m planning on using it as part of a surrealist themed identity.

I think it’s useless to have an absolute favourite. Some favourites that spring to mind for particular applications:

Headlines:
Futura Bold and Bold Cond
Gotham
Various grotesques, especially the Font Bureau family

Book/long text:
Quadraat
Sabon
Baskerville

Short text:
Gotham
Gotham Rounded
Akzidenz Grotesk
Scala Sans

Screen:
Calabri

Signage:
Frutiger, Meta, Info

Imitation children’s writing:
Comic Sans (you’re not the boss of me)
>>
>>327040
Go away. You add nothing at all. Same as irl probably.
>>
>>327040

I think you're wrong because I've been typing like this for fucking decades now.
>>
I use Futura a lot. Mostly use Baskerville or Caslon for copy/captions, paired with Helvetica or Akzidenz for headings.
>>
Papyrus.
>>
Proxima Nova, Gotham, I even really like the new proprietary Google don't - Product Sans. Just a big fan of geometric fans ig
>>
Montserrat and Bungee are the shit.
