Font Friday: A or B

I've got our upcoming honeymoon on my mind. So today's font isn't inspired by food, but rather our destination: Puerto Rico.

And, of course, I can't pick just one font! I'm torn between A: Tenshu


and B: Houndcats PB.
Houndcats PB

Tenshu*, designed by Radomir Tinkov, a Bulgarian type designer, is a display typeface. It could easily work for signage & print as well as for web design & motion graphics. Houndscat PB, on the other hand, designed by Phil Bracco, an American type designer from Montana, is a light hearted comic sansserif typeface inspired by a 1972 cartoon of the same name.

Maybe we'll just have to wait until the end of our honeymoon to pick the font - one refined invoking images of cocktails by the pool or touring art galleries and the other bringing images of friends tossing one another into the pool/ocean and possibly overindulging in rum samples.

Which is your favorite font? Tenshu or Houndcats PB?

Bon Apetit!
