It sounds geeky, but I can reel off font names pretty easy when I see type and text design.

You see, when you have worked in the design industry for a quite a while you get familiar with typeface families.

We all have our favourites fonts when it comes to design and then there are those fonts that you just hate. You may hate them because of their ugliness, their overuse or for some other reason.

Take for example these selection of hated typefaces – Times New Roman, Papyrus and the most loathed font in the design world – Comic Sans!
