Typeface selection for specific tasks is difficult for both students and professionals of graphic design given the number of typefaces available and the predominance of type classifications criteria during the decision-making process. A more rational approach is proposed, based on Gerrit Noordzij's ideas and Erik van Blokland's Typecooker methodology. An algorythm used to assess the suitability of a typeface instead of trying to classify it can be good to graphic designers, type designers and educators for a wide range of uses.
