I’m an ad designer for a local magazine. A local business was submitting an ad and asked for my feedback on it.
It was comic sans with drop shadows.
I successfully convinced them to change the font, but they dug their heels in on the drop shadows.
Me: It’s a little outdated and you have it on every piece of text. I think the ad ad will look less busy if you just lose the drop shadow.
Client: No, I still think it looks cool.
I came THIS CLOSE to sarcastically suggesting bevel and emboss, but I know they would have though those were cool too.
