    What is your favourite font to design with? Right now, I'm obsessed with Southampton.

    For a long time I was addicted to Roboto and Open Sans. The first years of full compatibility of Google Web Fonts was exciting as a developer. :D

    I don't like everyday fonts like Arial but I use it heavily for one of my services and it's growing on me.

    For papers, Times New Roman. It's professional.

    There's a whole bunch of bikeshedding that goes on with programming fonts, (Consolas, Fira, whatever) and all I can say is that I've used the default for so long that anything else looks weird. Neutra is pretty sexy. Other go to's are Roboto, Univers, Ostrich, Franklin Gothic, Din, and Avenir.

    For serif fonts, I like Georgia and Palatino. Also, I enjoy slab serifs like Museo or Rockwell.

    I'm already sick of Helvetica and Gotham. Not that I don't use them, but I'll try something else first just to keep it interesting and to experiment.

    Hmm, this is a tough one because I like so many. I'll have to go with Bambino! I like the clean, modern feel.

    Sans-serif: Proxima Nova, Open Sans, Raleway, Roboto, Lato, Montserrat
    Serif: Playfair Display, Libre Baskerville, Modern no. 20
    Slab: Sanchez Slab
    Impact: Steelfish, Open Sans Condensed

    I always love a fun script font. Most of the scripts they sell on Creative Market are really lovely. I hate those system default fonts, though, ugh.

    How about for designing logos?

    A lot of factors come into effect for logos. I try not to have a favourite.

    I don't really have a favourite font, but when designing websites, I try to avoid third party fonts as this can have quite the negative impact on performance, unless it's in some sort of image like a logo.
