The Ignite challenge: Any topic, 20 slides, 15 seconds per slide, 5 minutes total. This was so much fun. It helped to be talking about a subject I’m passionate about. Remember, friends don’t let friends use bad fonts.
I love the “Jesus wouldn’t use this font” line.. while most of those fonts are on the scary retched side.. I can see how there might be instances for, well a couple of them anyway, that might be appropriate… or, maybe I’m just temperamentally ill-disposed to absolutes?
Thanks! I actually am in complete agreement with you. Most of these fonts aren’t “bad” in and of themselves, just misused. I do stumble upon appropriate use now and then. Although it’s getting more rare. Besides, absolutes are just funnier, don’t you think?
I am always learning from you. So many highlights here, I think my current favorite is “Now sadly this phenomenon is on the move, expanding across the country like a virus. A spindly, unbalanced, sarcastically casual virus.” I need that on a coffee mug. Really well prepared and presented.
