    Poor little guy.

    In design school, people thought it was odd that I assigned typefaces very distinct personalities and feelings, right down to the specific letters.

    It’s not weird… It’s Animismβ„’!

    It also makes me wonder what animism would be like from a synesthete’s point of view. ;)

      It makes me sadder everytime I read it :(

      Of COURSE fonts have personalities!! Call themselves designers… how can you be an artist and not realise that fonts and media and paper and everything has a personality!? We are the modern primitives – see our tattoo sleeves! Wait…

      I’ve never thought about the animism synesthesia angle… now I have to contemplate.

      That’s what I was reminded of as well, even though I haven’t seen Wall-E. Apparently the Rover had its own twitter page and everything – poor little Rover :(
