Dear Ben & Frank

What is a well-known font that you think is over used?

Question Submitted by Anonymous

Ben SaysWho cares? Designers complaining about particular fonts or bad typography annoy the hell out of me. There are much more important things to worry about.

          

Frank SaysIf a typeface is well designed, I think it’s okay to be overused. Gotham’s everywhere now. Helvetica’s been everywhere for a long while. I’m cool with that. If you’re asking What font would I choose to banish off the face of the earth? I’d probably say Papyrus. Yugh.
