QUIZ: Which typeface are you, really?

What's your typeface?

If you were to describe yourself as a typeface, which one would you choose? Are you a traditional, straight-down-the-middle sort of person, like Helvetica? Or are you a bit of a people-pleaser, like Johnston 100? Given that there are nearly 80 styles in our guide to the best free fonts for designers, there are certainly plenty of options to choose from.

To help you find out which typeface best represents your personality, the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) has created a fun little quiz. The institute, whose recent design census found out that illustrators are the poorest but the happiest in the industry, created this short typeface test for its Eye on Design magazine, and you can take it right now.
