Ariel > Helvetica anyway
I'm allowed to say boring stuff like that as I studied typography.
I'm interested as I am getting really bored of Arial and I have never like Times New Roman.
but it's company policy we use Arial on everything.
I have a soft spot for Bauhaus, no idea why.
because Bauhaus rules. It's only slightly less cool than the band.
but very appealing at the same time.
I feel the same way about, say, Bruce Forsyth or Romy and Michelles's High School Reunion
I can imagine it looking great with pink and yellow or blue and gold
That's what I'm talkin' about
is the thinking man's Helvetica.
Arial is fit only for swines
I've never actually used it I don't think.
If not then Arial wins immediately.
would ask a question like that
Helvetica > Arial anyday, if only because Arial is so overused, often in the most innapropriate places (BECAUSE it is a 'standard' typeface) I think Helvetica is a really good looking font, especially in a lighter weight.
And I say HellVETica
Arial is on everything nowadays.
Now, I hate...
