    Arrrgghhhhh....Bauhaus

    My first job out of college was creating ads for an audio / video store and their logo was in Bauhaus - can you say circa - way back then! They made me over use the heck out of it which wasn't hard...having appear in a newspaper ads I layed out several times per week for 2 years was TOOOO MUCH!

    There are fonts that are a curse of the 70's and before that should not be in current use! Especially those with open characters like Eras and Bauhaus / Blippo...more...

    When we see a dated font, we should immediately realize that the creator of the graphic is not a graphic artist! And it is our obligation to the customer to dump old dated type in deference to fresh and inviting contemporary type or time tested traditional type crafted by the masters in the old country. Yes, Bauhaus was crafted in the old country, and I mean OLD country. Stop using it!

    I'm doing a job right now for a company that uses Bauhaus for their logo, too. Sucky font IMO, but what do I care since I didn't design it as such.

    BTW, HI BARRY, HOW THE HECK ARE YA?!

    Eras ......... I love Eras. I also love styles with open centers. Saves having to weed them out.
