best typeface ever?

Wed May 23, 2007, 2:38 AM
FF Din Regular

I started watching the movie Fay Grim last night and only got as far as the opening credits. The typeface they used is just amazing.
I took a screenshot and fed it into the myfonts.com recogniser (~zer for you yanks), it spat out the wrong font, then i tried the fontsfonts.com recogniser and finally zeroed in on the right typeface: FF Din Regular

I have to say it's possibly the most beautiful typeface ive ever seen. so clean and solid. I bought the whole font-family. now just have to use it for something.
It has taken the crown from helvetica - which was my previous fave.

What's your favourite typeface? Do you have one?

Whats been happening lately? Well I finished my contract with dopeden. com - all the interface design is is finished. The database is still being finalised and the flash-monkeys are going through beta troubleshooting. site should be up in a few weeks. And if evrything goes well it will be the next big social-networking site, and take a good percentage of myspace users.
Wish I could post some screens of it, but im still under NDA till it launches.

Working a contract for hippo. com.au now, which is a targeted youth site for casual and part-time jobs (like SEEK.com for you aussies, or monster.com for you yanks).
Im Creative Director / Senior Designer - which is a wanky title lol, mostly doing media-buying and advertising strategies (which is a bit dry tbh). Still doing design but it's not overly exciting, have to stick within the corporate style/colours etc. Not a lot of room for creativity. Most creative stuff is coming up with snappy billboard slogans that are edgy and tongue-in-cheek-without-being-too-risque - not nearly as fun as jamming out some designs in ps/ill.
Its interesting doing the media buying side of things though, I havnt been exposed to that side of the industry before. A good learnign experience.
Got some meetings lined up with MTV/VH1 next week to discuss oportunities for cross promotions, motion is somthing im keen to get into, try my hand at something new :)

thats all thats kickin with me right now. oh yeah, bought a Pantone Huey finally! fantastic little gadget, and so cute :D
