Arial vs Helvetica


I ran across this quiz today on Ironic Sans: So you think you can tell Arial from Helvetica? Several logos using Helvetica were altered to use Arial. Pretty ingenious test.

I scored 20/20, but Mattell & Toyota were difficult as they are all caps and don't use the tell-tale characters. Of course, it helps that this chart showed up the other day as well.

Color IQ Test

X-Rite, makers of color measurement technology, posted a color IQ test on their site. The goal is to arrange the blocks of color by their hue. It's harder than you'd think.

I scored a 7. Before you laugh, the perfect score is 0. Higher numbers are worse.
