I get a kick out of videos that show personification of typefaces. I always think of each font being it’s own character, so it’s fun seeing those personalities realized in video form. Get some giggles with this Font Conference video at The video features Olde English, Futura, French Script and Baskerville Old Face debating whether or not they should let Zapf Dingbat into their font club. My favorite part, personally, is seeing Saucy Millionaire in the logo for CollegeHumor on the top of the page. Now that’s a funny font!

Chank Co got a nice mention in the “Down With Helvetica…” article in the NY Times last week. There’s lots of different ways to create your own custom font, and Chank’s “Go Font Yourself!” handwriting font service is just one way to get your distinct personality into typeable font format. If you’d rather adopt someone else’s personality, you can choose from 21 different handwriting styles in the GFY Handwriting Fontpak, a concise collection of contemporary handwriting styles from previous customers who’ve had their scripts fontified.
