Hey everyone,

We have a topic here about our favorite fonts - but is there a particular font that you really don't like? A font that hunts you in your worst nightmares and makes children cry when you show it to them? :) I was thinking about it lately and my answer is - yes! There is that one font I just haaate from the bottom of my heart. When I think about adding it to a logo I'm working on - suddenly my design becomes generic and unoriginal, because of zillion other logos that use it. Harabara - uh, how I dislike you!

Anyone have a similar experience?

PS. Don't take this topic too seriously.

Cheers,
Iridith

Don't hate the font. Hate the font designer :p

I don't really hate any of the more known fonts. They all have their uses and times when they fit what you need.

I like Myriad the most because it is so tidy but with power while presented in bold type. I hate nothing because every fonts had their own character.

Love Myriad Pro because it fits almost everywhere and is tasteful. It is not too fancy neither too boring. Wide range of using Myriad Pro - websites, logos, posters etc.
Most hated? Probably classical answer: Comic Sans.

Each font has it's context. The important thing is finding it! :)
