Introducing the Average Font
Let the internet font wars be over. Let us no longer debate the merits of Arial or Tahoma or (gasp!) Comic Sans. Designer Moritz Resl has freed us all up to settle other longstanding debates by creating the Average font - an amalgam of each the hundreds of different fonts found on his computer:
This project shows what a font would look like if it consisted of all typefaces installed on my system. Every character from a to z is drawn using every single font with a low opacity. In total there are over 900 typefaces in my library. I didn’t exclude the ugly ones.
I'm glad that's settled.
