Originally created for a class at the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Copenhagen, and based on FontShop’s 100 Best Typefaces, Julian Hansen’s “So You Need a Typeface?” became an instant online sensation with mentions in not just design blogs, but more mainstream outlets like MetaFilter, BuzzFeed and Lifehacker. And just like Hollywood studios pick-up hot indie flicks here and there, production mavens Scribble on Everything — who previously picked up the Periodic Table of Typefaces poster — have gotten the deal on the official print of this poster. Printed deceptively simple with silver ink on black paper, the poster makes the task of selecting typefaces look as mysterious and cool as we designers make it out to be.

You can pick up your own copy here or you can keep playing roulette with your font menu to choose the best typeface.
