favourite fonts

hun's picture

what are your favourite fonts?
and why do you like them? which elements do you find particularly aesthetic? what is your typographic identity?

some of my obsessions :

ITC RONDA
BODEGA SANS (mcdonalds uses this)
BINARY (by mauricio reyes, used in sydney olympics!)
ROTIS SEMI SERIF
MYRIAD CONDENSED
typefaces designed by M/M
TORONTO SUBWAY
DIN
GILL SANS
APPLE GARAMOND
FUTURA
OPTIMA
VAG ROUNDED (innit the font that macs have on their keyboards?)
TRAJAN
SERPENTINE
...

overall i like fonts that have a systemic structure that combines both geometric / symmetric / prime and chaotic / asymmetric elements but look very proportionally balanced and geometrically, proportionally hierarchical.. so every chaotic looking element / ornament functions effectively in terms of geometry and proportion as a whole.. an abstract at once orderly superstructure! im still figuring out the means to pursue it further.. but i was wondering which typefaces do you like? and which particular elements keep you hooked?

have a nice day
