Would you ever watch a Netflix movie just because of the font used in the movie title and credits?
I did. In fact, the movie had one of my least favorite Hollywood actors in it – Nicholas Cage; but, when I saw the font, I had to watch it.
What was the Netflix movie? Jiu Jitsu and here’s the font that grabbed my attention:
What was that font? I had never seen it before, but thanks to Google, I just searched for “font in Jiu Jitsu movie” and the search results told me it was a font called: Ethnocentric.
Another font I like, I learned about from the street artist, Shephard Fairey. He used this font in the famous “OBEY” poster depicting Andre the Giant (you can buy it on Amazon):
This font is called Futura Standard Condensed (although I wasn’t able to find this online):
The last font I currently like is called Sprite Graffiti Shadow:
And with all of this font-love, what is the font I use on my resume? Times New Roman. Oh well.
If you also are a lover of fonts, you might like this Fontcast from none other than the king of Font-nerds, Brick Heck (youngest son of Mike and Frankie Heck), who pointed out: “Any more than three fonts in the same document and you’re just showing off!”. I guess I am showing off in this blog post. 🙂
BONUS: What do you think of this image I made called “The Learning Pit”?
I exchanged the Calibri font with the Ethnocentric font after hearing Brick’s encouragement:
“Your choice of font says more about you than the words it’s written in”
