Helvetica

Helvetic was my typeface of choice when I was in design school and if you are interested in knowing more about it - follow this link!

It's a sturdy type with a European pedigree. It is also not that readily available - Arial is close, but doesn't quite match it for elegance. Look for it in architectural and interior design periodicals and graphic presentations!! There is even a feature film about the typeface! http://www.helveticafilm.com/index.html

Hey - just for fun, take the typeface quiz: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/helvetica/quiz.html
I was Times New Roman - I hate that face, though - won't use it.
