    Look at the letters that appear more than once. They're all very different from each other. This appears to be handwriting. I don't think there is a typeface or font involved.

  • According to you...

    What would YOU say are the top five mistakes a beginning designer can make? (having to do with their actual designs)

    I want to use this information for an ad I'm making for a design company in my electronic imaging class.

    Thanks

    1. Too many fonts in one design
    2. Bad grid/eye movement/composition
    3. Grunge brushes
    4. aligning objects to the center
    5. overall bad typography (font choices, kerning, leading, etc.)

    Those were just 5 that came to my mind.

        Definitely Frankster ... I was lame and used the my catch all "bad grid/eye movement/composition" to cover things like that ...

          1. Overusing gradients, drop shadows, bevel/emboss, stroke, Photoshop filters
          2. Unbalanced composition
          3. Inappropriate use of particular fonts (like a fancy girly font for a car ad, etc.)
          4. Upsampling
          5. Not enough contrast when placing colored text on a colored background

                  Can someone please fix it fast?
                  It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh
