Two posts in one day, this is a first for me. I could have left this to another day but I’ve decided to vent my frustration now while it’s still fresh.
I have a problem with the font Eurostar. Don’t get me wrong, it is a very nice font and I’ve even used it myself. With Eurostar you can never go wrong, everything looks great. And there lies the problem. Eurostar is used to great excess, I can’t go a day without seeing it on a website, magazine or signs. I don’t have a fancy website like Ban Comic Sans but I have a similar point to stress to everyone.
There can be too much of a good thing (in most but not all cases). Fonts are meant to add flavour to design, not breed consistency and conformity. Please people, go on the patch. Slowly cut down your use of Eurostar. Be bothered to search the internet for new and exciting fonts, or take a stab at making your own. Spread the word, Eurostar abuse must stop now.
