Have you ever wondered what your choice of font says about your personality? Much like handwriting, good typography can really make or break a message, with ones preference reflecting not only their personality, but also their attitude and even job type. Vital for giving off the right impression, whether you wish to project a business persona on your CV, or sharp and sophisticated appearance on an invitation, it’s important to ensure your chosen font emulates the essence of what you want to say. With so many typefaces to choose from it can be confusing, so to help you decipher your Cambria from your Comic Sans, Pen Heaven have whittled down the top font choices, detailing the perfect use of occasion and what they reveal about the author.
