Type/Type

Type/Type is an eight question quiz designed to reveal your typeface personality. 

The typefaces in the deck represent the 4 categories of sans-serifs (neo-grotesque, humanist, grotesque, geometric), 4 categories of serifs (old-style, transitional, modern, slab), and 4 displays (calligraphic script, gothic script, sans-serif display, serif display). 

The code card reveals which character corresponds to a particular question. For example, the answers for question one, "How do you typically style your hair?" were determined by the lowercase 'a' terminal of each typeface. Futura’s ‘a’ corresponds to “pin straight and long,” while Cooper Black’s ‘a’ corresponds to a “wavy messy bun”.

After answering all 8 questions, flip the cards over to discover your Type/Type!
