helvetica_1957 As a graphic designer Im always looking for some fresh new fonts to try, but sometimes it’s just best to go back to basics. And that is what they did at this German website:  100besteschriften.de. Their list of 100 best typefaces of all times is basically real guideline for young graphic designer’s. It’s compiled of most popular fonts, and top 10 would be: Helvetica, Garamond, Frutiger, Bodoni, Futura, Times, Akzidenz Grotesk, Officina, Gill Sans and Univers.
Many of them you already saw as they come packed with OS like Windows. But some are really specific, and unique.
