Friday fun with fonts

cheeseorfontLooking for a distraction? Play Cheese or Font? and you’ll be hooked. I warn you, it’s REALLY tough. Type designers are a creative bunch. And interesting. Check out this interview with a type designer named Chank Diesel.

The game should technically be called Cheese or Typeface. While it doesn’t matter to those of us outside the design community, it irritates some designers. For an explanation of the difference between typeface and font, see They’re not fonts on the AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) site.

Happy Friday!
