What Fonts Would Look Like If They Were People
By Louise Jane Cher, 23 Sep 2015
Every font has a unique personality, based on its appearance.
Design shop Love & Robots has reimagined the personified fonts in this elegantly illustrated series, titled ‘If Fonts Were People’.
For example, ‘Luca Helvetica’, based on the Helvetica typeface, would be a “Clean Swiss Hipster”—the font is after all swiss-made, clean and simple.

“Luca never finds himself out of style. Born in 1957 to the Swiss designer Max Miedinger. He’s tall and thin however his weight may vary depending on when you catch him. He shuns decoration in favour of clear simplicity. A modern day chameleon, you’ll find him almost anywhere. He could be skulking underground aboard a New York Subway or flying overhead in an international PANAM flight.”
“Abelie is a modern (or Didone) woman. Born in the eighteenth century to the Italian typographer Giambattista Bodoni. Full bodied and vivacious, she looks tremendous for her age. Something of a poser, she likes to set herself up somewhere where she’ll be on display. Be that in front of a coffee shop or in the headlines of a magazine. She never fails to bring a touch of class.”
“Frederick Times is a man in the know. He hasn’t missed a current affair beat since his beginnings in 1931. Which isn’t surprising as his birth was a direct request from the British newspaper The Times. A quiet intellectual, you won’t find him vying for your attention. He’s clean and clear and rarely misunderstood. A reliable man to have around when you’re looking to do some convincing.”
