I’m not the first or only person who has strong, strong feelings about fonts. In fact, there are a lot of images floating around the web that were created by people who share in my font feelings…
Some advice: don’t settle on the first font you see. Type out the word or phrase that you’re looking for a font for, copy it, paste it several times, and experiment with fonts. Here’s a sample of what I’m talking about:
Do you see how each font has its own personality? Let me tell you the perceived personalities of some of the world’s
ugliest favorite fonts…
1. A brace-faced fifth grader working on her book report.
2. Anyone and anything who is trying to put off an international and/or cultural vibe.
3. A bubbly girl who loves hot pink bubble gum and cute, fluffy things.
4. That letter from Santa or the Tooth Fairy that’s been typed to maintain an alias.
Not the vibe you’re looking to put off? Stop using ugly fonts! Download new ones, people. Download away!
