Typo Disaster


Got this through the school email. I just think we need a form of quality control in school. Especially since we’re a design institution. IMHO, it’s a real eye-sore everytime I walk past these posters that have been plastered around school.

Palatino at display size, reminds me of NTUC Fair Price, somewhere in Ang Mo Kio.

And the other one looks like some condensed Cheltenham.

But you’re right, it’s bad, especially when the play was about beauty and not greyness.
