Terrible Typography : The Battle Against Awful Fonts

October 21, 2008 at 3:56 am 3 comments

I’m just gonna say it. I hate Papyrus. It’s everywhere. From now until I get so tired of it that I go insane, I will document all the places that Papyrus pops up and haunts me.

Exhibit A: I was having a wonderful time the Renaissance Festival with some friends this weekend when I see this.

I was just looking for some handmade jewelry and saw it.  I love Echo & Wild’s silver jewelry, but frown upon their company identity.  


Then today, I was reading a Game Informer magazine that came in the mail.  I was looking through it, just thumbing through and then set it down.  And guess what I saw on the cover?  The COVER!


Dammit!  It’s everywhere.  Maybe by documenting all the ways that this offensive font invades my life, I can convince at least one person to be more creative with their typography. 


The battle has begun.

    I agree, I used to like papyrus, but now I’m so tired of seeing it. Lately, I’ve been using the Century Gothic, simple but I love the roundness of it.
