I am Helvetica

Like the sign says, I am a bit boring. OK, maybe more than a bit boring. I like Garr Reynolds description of Helvetica better:

I don't think of the typeface as dull or boring, I think of it as neutral, but not in a colorless, noncommittal way, but in a way that's helpful and intentional. It's almost like there is a sort of Zen in the way Helvetica is perfectly, beautifully bland (and yet, not bland).
I like to think of myself as "helpful and intentional", but I'd never go so far as to claim that there's any sort of Zen about me.

If you'd like to know what typeface you are, head on over to [i]ndependent lens and take the quiz.
