What Type Are You?

What Type Are You?

Visit 'What Type Are You?': a micro-site developed by Pentagram, and discover a typeface that reflects your personality.

Marina Script: emotional, understated, traditional, disciplined; “a 1936 version of a writing style that is centuries old. It is a typeface with delicately emotional swoops and serifs delivered with an aristocratic precision & restraint... apparently, it’s also my personality summed up in a typeface.

Typefaces, and the letters they depict, are a lot like people. They come in all shapes, sizes, weights and forms. Some quietly grace the page while others scream for attention. Some are so wildly popular and well-known that it’s difficult to imagine a world without them while others simply depict the times or a trend.

Pentagram, one of the world’s most respected design firms, has created a site that explores the question: What type are you? The site, narrated by a faceless, Freudian faceless analyst, asks you four personality questions, after which you’re presented with a typeface that reflects your personality most accurately according to your answers. You’ll not only learn a little about yourself, but even a little bit of history behind the typeface which represents you.
