I have taken issue with two specific fonts that are not only overused by photographers but that just simply suck in general and make your photographs look rather amateur. What are these fonts, you ask?
Well the font I take the most issue with is Papyrus. This font should NEVER be used by any one ever! I can confidently call this the worst font ever created. Now, I’m sure there are worse, visually speaking, but being that this font is so heavily used, it puts it right at the top of my list. Not only is it ugly, but it does not look fun or professional. STAY AWAY from this font when creating your logo or stamping your photographs!
The second font, although less offensive than the first, is simply too generic and overused in general to give your identity any originality. The font I am referring to is Times New Roman. The mere fact that it is the default font in almost every word processor should be a hint that this font should not be used for a photographer’s logo design. A lot, however, still gravitate towards this font for design purposes. You would think that creative people producing creative photographs would want to use a more creative font to represent their images, but that is not always the case. A bit of advice from a photographer and graphic designer (me!), just say no to Times New Roman.
