I am not knowledgable when it comes to fonts. You’re talking to the girl who used to use Comic Sans as the default font in her company e-mails! (Typophiles, don’t get a heart attack, okay?) I do know, however, how to recognize a fun font that will make your days at work more enjoyable. It doesn’t mean you have to use the font for official correspondence, but I am pretty sure you can find a lot of other uses for it.
So what font am I talking about? The Droid Robot Font. The font that will get Android lovers all worked up, I assume. I don’t even have an Android device, but I still think that this font is cool! Take a look up there again.
How cute is that? It seems to me that the robot is making gestures in a similar manner as one would when employing the semaphore flag system. However, upon closer inspection – and checking out semaphore formations after eons – the gestures are not the same. Still, the concept is fun! Here is the complete Droid Robot Font alphabet.
There is, of course, a set for lower case letters.
And here’s the set for the numbers.
It does not end there! There is a set for punctuation marks and some common symbols.
Looking at the entire line up, I cannot help but notice that some symbols that I use regularly are missing from the Droid Robot Font set: the euro sign, the pound sign, and trademark sign. Then again, it’s not such a big deal if you look at the overall concept.
It is easy to imagine posters and flyers using the Droid Robot Font, although overusing it might just prove to be a headache. As fun as I think the font is, it does not exactly make for easy reading, does it?
Do we have any typophiles out there? What’s your judgement?
