My (current) favorite typefaces

This is where you shall find me fangirling over different typefaces. It changes occasionally as I have a great many of typefaces I favor, but few I use as often as these.


  • Adobe Garamond Pro
  • Didot
  • Rockwell Std
  • Memphis
  • ITC Lubalin Graph Std

If you did not notice, I have a bit of a soft spot for slab-serif fonts, especially Memphis and Lubalin. You can see Rockwell at work in my Ampersand Type Conference campaign.


  • Futura Std
  • Akzidenz-Grotesk
  • Franklin Gothic Book
  • Museo Sans

I adore Futura, I’m trying to break myself out of the habit of using it too often. It is so dang useful, the variety of weights and styles makes it so versatile. The “e” in my logo is Futura!
