What Type Are You?

Always wondered what typeface you are? Now Pentagram can help give you an answer…


Always wondered what typeface you are? Now Pentagram can help give you an answer…


This site was originally set up as a Christmas message from Pentagram, but we’ve just realised that the password works for anyone, so thought we’d share it with you. Visit the site here, and simply type in your name and the password ‘character’ and off you go. A psychiatrist figure will then ask you a number of questions about your personality before diagnosing you with a typeface. A short film about your type will then play.



Like star signs, there are twelve different faces you can be, and it’s worth checking out the others that you missed out on at the end of the film, as they are all pretty fabulous.
