Does it remind you of Comic Sans? :)

It’s the one thing that is bugging me about the site redesign… just wanted to see if it was bugging anyone else…

I must admit I am having trouble with it. The kerning is terrible in quite a few cases. However, it is commendable that they have taken a chance to do something different.

The graphic river logotype is definitely screaming at me. the ‘cr’ is way too tight.

I’m all for being different… when it works; However, I don’t think this font fits with the clean cut lines of the site… and it looking too close to Comic Sans is giving me a case of the yucks..

Yeah… the kerning is bad too…

Maybe we are the only typophiles in here… but yes I agree, it doesn’t quite sit right but I am willing to get used to it.

Ha,

Nope, not the only typophiles – I made a similar comment here earlier today:

http://graphicriver.net/forums/thread/discussion-how-do-you-like-the-redesign/16700

I also noticed the c and r in graphicriver…a case of the yucks is indeed a perfect descriptive. Now, what can we do to get them to change it? :-) Hopefully, enough people voice up here and they maight take notice.

thanks fellas for validating my neurosis. ;-) Spooken

Whew! good to that I’m no the only one who believes in crafting your typography!

The font itself is badly ‘hinted’ hence the yucky kerning.

I actually like the font a lot. Very clean and modern. But I do agree the kerning is way off in many instances.
