Helvetica the hipster.
Every font has a unique personality, and everyone has an opinion what that personality would be.
Love & Robots has reimagined some of the worlds most popular fonts in this brilliantly illustrated series ' If Fonts Were People'.
Each font/person comes with a little bio explaining their background, check the series out below.
“Luca never finds himself out of style. Born in 1957 to the Swiss designer Max Miedinger. He’s tall and thin however his weight may vary depending on when you catch him. He shuns decoration in favour of clear simplicity. A modern day chameleon, you’ll find him almost anywhere. He could be skulking underground aboard a New York Subway or flying overhead in an international PANAM flight.”
“Abelie is a modern (or Didone) woman. Born in the eighteenth century to the Italian typographer Giambattista Bodoni. Full bodied and vivacious, she looks tremendous for her age. Something of a poser, she likes to set herself up somewhere where she’ll be on display. Be that in front of a coffee shop or in the headlines of a magazine. She never fails to bring a touch of class.”
“Frederick Times is a man in the know. He hasn’t missed a current affair beat since his beginnings in 1931. Which isn’t surprising as his birth was a direct request from the British newspaper The Times. A quiet intellectual, you won’t find him vying for your attention. He’s clean and clear and rarely misunderstood. A reliable man to have around when you’re looking to do some convincing.”
Ronald the Comic Sans is a young and troubled entertainer who came into being in the mid nineties. As with most great entertainers, he is not afraid of a little controversy. Adored by children yet reviled by many, Ronald is known to have something of a sinister side, often showing up in places completely unsuitable for an entertainer of his kind. He’s been known to lurk around ‘Do not enter’ signs in toilet cubicles and on serious notices in Doctors offices. Once attempting to be taken seriously announcing the split and reformation of a Greek Government party!
