Rockwell is sweet! That's what I want for Christmas!

Unfortunately I have a very limited font collection at the moment, just the ones that came with photoshop. American Typewriter is a cool, reliable classic, probably my fave among the standard fonts. I also dig Arial and Courier New, both solid choices. Rosewood Std is a lot of fun and is the perfect when you need something with an old-world or circus-like vibe.

Haha, yep, it's totally garish, which is why I like it. It has a P.T. Barnum feel to it, which you have to admit is kind of cool.

I kinda like these tacky circus and western fonts, it's a pity that it's so hard to find a decent use for them... 9 out of 10 times, they're jus ttoo much.

igo2cairo

yes, I agree, they have to be used very sparingly!

I would never use it in an actual design, I was thinking more in terms of a presentation. I used Rosewood in in my Fantastic Voyage sub and thought it was appropriate.

Depends on the context/what you're trying to say.

Default answer = Helvetica
