I recently participated and greatly enjoyed the monthly Craft Challenge by   And you know what?  It’s fun to get creative “offline” once in a while! So, I have come up with an idea to combine “computer geek” with “creative nerd”.

    Lisa Davis referred me, I thought it would be easy when I could identify the usual players, but I’m a little stuck!

    1. Myriad
    2. Myriad Pro? (I can’t figure out the difference between 1 and 2, appears finer, the e is more open, the f horizontal stroke is more symmetrical)
    3. Verdana
    4. Helvetica (pretty sure not Neue, or Arial)
    5. *Trick?* I can’t find this anywhere, that q and b don’t have the same feel as the rest, like the e looks straight out of Helvetica, but the q is varied stroke with a slanted axis… like Monaco…

    I give up. 3 out of 5?

    I think Arial font

    1 – Myriad / Myriad Pro?
    2 – Myriad / Myriad Pro?
    3 –
    4 – Helvetica?
    5 –

    …that’s all I got for the moment. I’d almost say #1 and #2 are the same font, but the periods seem to have a different weight.
