I'm talking cover letters, applications, perhaps essays...
Also what font do you use for your CV?
Life's not just one big long joke.
for all his presentations and lectures. He'll borrow powerpoint slides and change them to comic sans. You'll ask him to have a look through your presentation and he'll return it having changed the whole things to comic sans. The man is an animal.
Garamond for formal letter
I am quite taken with Calibri.
My work uses Comic Sans for all the SOPs, and I'm trying to weed it out.
Sound like a whacky bunch. Either that or they're being post-modern and knowing
fucking LOVE it.
You don't fuck with perfection.
there are other fonts i love but for formal stuff, it's right here
But you overlooked the fact that palatino is perfection that ought not to be fucked with
or Ariel....can't remember what it's called.
and we'll dazzle them all! ha-hold onnnnn!
Not sure why I ever used it in the first place, but I like it and it stuck.
but calibri or arial do a job
for cv, cover letters, applications
I'd be too scared too
she spoke a surprising amount of sense and suggest Arial or Tahoma. I've gone for Arial.
Times New Roman is too boring and I think sans serif fonts look better on CVs.
is it georgia? it is i think.
definitely have to go for a serif font but also definitely one a bit more modern than times new roman which i think georgia is [if it is the one i am thinking of]. think of it as a refinement more than innovation [like allo darlin compared to belle & sebastian or w/e]
all very similar, and with a slightly more modern feel than tnr. Not quite as compact, too.
Has always got me the best jobs
but my work's style guide says Arial size 10. Which is fine by me, as I prefer that to any other sans serif to be honest.
however, if i was going external it'd be Georgia.
i was told sans serif fonts are easier for people with reading difficulties to follow? Whatever, I like it, it always looks nice and clean on the page. I always think going with times new roman looks a bit like the writer forgot to select any other font...
Lifes for living, guys. Lighten up
but if you are responding to something I'd quite often use what your client / target audience has used. In procurement tendering processes they'll often tell you what they want you to use, including border sizes, font sizes, word counts etc..
