ooh somehow I got 7 right. I guess I more fonts than I thought!

Becky said...

I got 7 of them correct too.

Pattern and Perspective said...

7 for me, too. Hmm, a pattern going on....

Cameron Blazer said...

Woo! 9 out of 10. If knowledge of useless font trivia were a marketable skill, I'd be set!

BreeLeeD said...

I somehow also got 7/10.

littleandcute said...

yayy, 9 out of 10 too! i'm a font nerd..

bluekelebek said...

Another 7/10 here. Andele Mono, Georgia and Trajan stumped me.
One font I can not stand is Papyrus. IT'S EVERYWHERE! I've lived in 3 different countries and I've seen it everywhere.

Jennie Bee said...

That was a lot of fun lol!

Em said...

Funny! I got 9/10 right... Cute quiz!

Georgia B. said...

ooh, can't wait to take it! thanks!

zoe said...

I got 7 too!

ANNE said...

Hilarious. I can't stand Papyrus, either. My supervisor set it as the default font on her e-mails! It was so annoying to have to read anything from her.

Jess said...

Whoa, that's bad.

Kosmika said...

5 out of 10... probably the worst result ever, ehm.. :)

I got 6/10 and I was whooping it up over here. I was quite surprised that I did that well.

I'm linking to this, too! Thanks!

Genevieve said...

7 outa 10! (...and you call yourself a professional!!!)

It's those dang san serif fonts!

I have a client who's outdated, needs-a-face-lift LOGO is set in Papyrus and they constantly "suggest" that all body copy in ads be in the same font.

You know, so they will MATCH!

Arrrgh!

I got 9 right... I love type tests

Larissa said...

10 for 10. I just saw someone post a link to an WSJ article about someone launching a formal campaign to abolish Comic Sans. I wish I had that kind of free time.

Jess said...

Yeah, abolishing Comic Sans is going to take a heck of a lot of free time. Needs to be done, though.

How fun! One of the only tests that I got a 100:-)

Erin said...

I got 8 right. Almost guessed Tahoma on #9 but didn't go with my first instinct.

Fun quiz! Helps me feel a little bit better about all the time I have spent in the font world. But, as Cameron Blazer said, if only it were a marketable skill! :)
