I asked this question to James Grieshaber, Kent Lew, and Stephen Coles with various results, but if there were ONE typeface on the face of the earth that you'd rather never see again, what would it be, and why?
(If you list P*pyr*s, C*mic S*ns, or any other typeface that could be found on 2002 Free Fonts, you're not trying hard enough.)
So here's mine:
ITC Souvenir (Particularly the bastard mono.)
This typeface is so ugly, yet it's everywhere. The roundness doesn't come across as round, it comes across as soft. And in that not-good soft way. Although designed by Morris Fuller Benton in the 10s, it's too 70s, in the bad feathered hair and brown tinted eyeglasses way. I would rather live in a world where Souvenir does not exist.
