Sad Clinton Fans Will Miss Their Campaign's Horrible Typography, Which, By the Way, Totally Reminds Me of a Bad 1980s Designer Cologne Logo

Those signs were actually designed and printed by the Obama people. Supposedly when Hillary saw them she said that she liked the design and wished that she used it.

They ARE tacky, aren't they. I hate cutesy fonts. I hate them!

You guys, that's not a font. That's her handwriting.
And as a former typographer and typeface designer, if it were a font you'd see it used in a lot of new applications.
So there.

I didn't call it a font; I called it "typography" for that very reason.

I would say she was giving a nod to Bijan, one of her favorite Beverly Hills designers, and Bijan perfume.

I kinda like it, but then I'm a Hillary worshipper.
