This font, Hobo,

is the new Comic Sans or Papyrus.

No, seriously. It's everywhere, because people think it's 'fun.'

Stop it! Use a better font in a way that makes it say 'fun,' don't try to use a quirky font that is so immediately recognizable to shortcut it.

Hobo is wide and awkward and ungainly and its default kerning does not work well. Like any typeface, it can have its appropriate uses, but I find it hard to believe that it is the best choice for any situation. Much like its annoying Comic Sans and Papyrus brethren.

Seriously. Hobo is one to avoid.

My first quarter back in school ended yesterday. I'm still recovering from that last week of struggling to put forth my very best work for finals.

Here's something that really made it feel worthwhile. It's from my Typography teacher, labeled by my classmates as a total hardass.


Seth,

I have to say that your book was a real pleasure to go through. I'm looking forward to showing it to some of the other graphic design instructors next week during our meetings. It really is an outstanding collection of work.

I'm looking forward to having you in my classes in the future. Keep up the great work. Should you ever need help on a project or just want my opinion, please don't hesitate to ask.

Regards,

Daniel
