FONTS

Fonts perform a great role in your design, so you should know which fonts not to use in your designs. Either in typography or in web page design, the use of proper fonts is a great advantage. Sometimes, designs become disasters just because the font is not used properly or, in some sense, does not fit the occasion.

I tried to make a list of fonts that you should never use again. These were selected because they were too cliché and very hard to put into the design. The essence of this list is not to fully discriminate mainstream and cliché fonts but to properly use them for fitting occasions.

FONTS TO NEVER USE AGAIN! THEY HAVE BEEN DEAD...KEEP THE IN THE GRAVE!
SEVERAL CARDINAL RULES CONCERNING FONTS

  • Never, ever, ever use Papyrus or Comic Sans in your designs (unless you want your designs to appear amateur).
  • Kerning (the space between the letters) is as important as the letters themselves. Always look at the negative space between your letters, especially in instances of large type, and adjust accordingly. Always trust your eye; never trust a default kerning table.
  • Ornate fonts are for headers and large type areas only. Choose simple serif or sans-serif fonts for the body. Always value readability.
