I've recently moved from Arial to Calibri. Exciting times (new roman).
depending on how work-centric what I'm doing is.
Comic Sans all the way.
i've seen letters from debt collection agencies written in comic sans.
I don't like it.
Our German overlords chose it as the corporate font though, so there's not much choice.
I like the look of AD Grotesk (but not for body text).
i've also just done this.
before that it was verdana
before that it was comic sans
i've grown up :')
but I've been told I have to use a serif font for my OU course. Trying to get used to Times New Roman. I can't say I'm very happy about it. Its a bit better double spaced.
we don't have office 2007 yet ...
Or who gets documents from it a lot.
It's a nice font. Our company has two standard fonts:
The first is the default for almost everyone because it just so happens almost no one has the second one on their PCs. Great work.
Office 2010 is out this year. We're due to get it in 2013.
I don't think parts of our company are even on Office 2003. And everyone's still on XP with IE6.
Half of our office is on 98. I thank the lord I'm not one of them.
Somehow I managed to get Visual Studio 2008 though, so it's not all bad.
VS2008 is the 9th version of Visual Studio. NINE VERSIONS and they still haven't fixed that issue where you get a link saying, "Get help with this error" and you click it but it shows you ABSOLUTELY FUCK ALL! :D
Georgia, if I'm after a non-Times New Roman serif
Size: 11pt for letters. 10pt is too weeny. 12pt is a smidge too big.
its a stone cold classic
and in a dark gray colour
God I hate myself for answering this.
fuck the serif cunts. also, the shell computers use windows 2000 and office 2000. and ie 5.0 i think. hahah
he's the bassist (I think) in Port O'brien.
Swiss has been courting me lately though.
for the purposes of web design. It seemed to come down to Garamond for serif and Arial for sans.
Helvetica 45 Light is the company standard, but I prefer Helvetica 55 Roman.
It's nice and a bit severe. Or Palatino Linotype for when I write my snippy letters to the editor/council/filthy amoral neighbours.
But then I do work at a holistic therapy spa next to a health food store on one side and an organic cafe on the other.
gotta love that calibri.
Sans serif: Arial, but I do like Calibri.
11pt (or 12pt for essays).
put abit more effort into your posting mr ;)
Doesn't she realise that after that freak paralysis attack you had to enter the entire thread using your nose?
I can't believe I've replied to this.
but I read something on a CV website that "law firms love TNR" :(
My covering letter for it also made me vomit myself inside out.
But it means the chance to get £600 to stand up in front of my lecture and say "(law firm) is great, you should all wanna work for them. thanks, here's a highlighter and a free flapjack"
More of a serif thing. Looks more classic than the more contemporary feel of a sans serif.
But work fruitiga Roman, home - century gothic.
I fluctuate between
Arial Bold (mainstay)
Century Gothic (lovely stuff)
Verdana (not a big fan of it but I end up using it a lot)
but the King of the Fonts is Helvetica. And sometimes Helvetica Light if I'm feeling fruity. Excellent. My CV is in Helvetica.
Always pt 10 or 11. Unless I'm producing materials for people who are visually impaired.
My favourite font ever may just be the Transport for London font though. Crisp, clear and really, really nice to look at.
But I like Tahoma
I'm not sure about Calibri yet, it looks a font for a children's book.
I'm a default settings kind of guy
1.5 spacing if I'm required to space
small margins (unless I want to include space for handwritten notes, in which case small margins left top and bottom, slightly larger on right)
Georgia used to be my favourite
I quite like Arial when it is written in capitals because it is narrow
but what do you expect of a two-time convicted murderer with a hook for a left hand and a taste for expensive ladies hosiery?
Or Arial if I want that mid-90s feel.
It makes everything look like Popjustice, especially if you type 'AMAZING' in the middle of work documents.
Sans: Tahoma (or Trebuchet MS, if less formal)
FONT NEWSFLASH: Gill Sans, Helvetica and some more bizarre fonts like Bauhaus 93 and Ravie have appeared on my PC. Where have they come from? I didn't install 'em. And there aren't any likely candidates for programs that have brought them along automatically. Odd.
Karl Malone's here, he's gonna deliver
if you don't use arial for emails then you stand out like a massive gimp. i used to tahoma and when i switched i felt like i had been promoted respect-wise about 17 times.
Arial is the most hideous font known to personity.
My preferred is palatino (with TNR as an understudy), though I've accidentally used calibri a lot and I don't hate it.
I've gone from dark grey Cambria to black Tahmona size 10.
we're not talking dress sizes here, baby!
and you have no idea what I'm talking about.
*retro-active abandon reply*
until they used it for the Tory election manifesto. Boo-urns.
