The Wrong Idea

T.26 has some nice fonts. About once a month or so they send me an email with some of their latest creations. I’m a writer, but I appreciate nice typography.
I just received an email about SketchType, which they boast “makes it easy to incorporate the texture of hand-drawn lettering into any project without ever picking up a pencil.”
I find this a little ridiculous, and I hope you do to. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing with passion. And that means picking up a pencil. Use these fonts as inspiration. But do not use these fonts.
Please aspire to be art directors and not just ad directors.
