What Type Are You?

Typefaces reflect the character of the person using them, I usually gravitate towards mono spaced typefaces and never gave much thought as to why. Actually, I have given it some thought and figured it was because of my programming background and my heavy use of the command line.

Pentagram has created an application "What Type Are You" with research of over seven years with a team of 23 academics across Eastern Europe. The application asks four key character questions and analyses your responses in exceptional detail and recommends one of 16 typefaces as a result.

My typeface is Archtype Van Doesburg. Architype Van Doesburg is a geometric sans-serif typeface based upon a 1919 alphabet designed by Theo Van Doesburg. The face is constructed entirely of perpendicular evenly weighted strokes. Each character is based upon a square divided into a raster of 25 smaller squares.
