Confessions of a distracted geek


I am very proud of myself - I just found the Arial vs Helvetica quiz and scored 9 out of 10. Or should I be ashamed because I got one wrong? There's no feedback so I don't which one.

The Helvetica film is a wonderful celebration of typography. I enjoyed it hugely until I realised that it was never going to end, and that they were never going to stop the examples and the interviews. So I left early and never found out who dunnit. That's me and typographic geekery all over - I used to be a true typographic geek but got distracted.

    To discover which question you got wrong, do the quiz again, change your answer to Q1 and leave all the other answers the same. If you don't get 10/10, do the quiz again, change your answer to Q2, leaving all other answers the same. And so on, until you get 10/10 on Qx, which will tell you that this was the question you got wrong. Probably you have worked this out for yourself.
