Crimes of Type

400th post! I was walking out of school today and passed this on my way out:

Creating a unicase typeface out of resized characters (Trade Gothic? News Gothic? I can’t tell) is sickening. I guess it’s got a quirky sort of feeling, but I don’t understand how a school with a design faculty can end up with things like these. Ugh.

alot of times, students are made to do designs their lecturers and directors feel its hip and trendy and thus neglecting all the aesthetic portion… :( most of the time is to please the big bosses and once they approve/like certain design, no matter how cmi it is, they also got to do it.
