But seriously, that can’t be real, right??

What is the designer trying to convey here? Is the message “I know I’m on deadline, but I’m so fuckin’ high…”?

Look on the bright side: it’s not comic sans.
I call that progress.

I’m trying to understand the original article linked to in this post. It was from the magazine itself, yes? They are making fun of their own cover? That just seems too meta.

Please! Those were the days of floppies.

He’s got a long way to go to get to this level of mastery:

Guh. Sadly it’s totally real. This is a new trend called “Ugly Design”. It’s supposed to be the graphic design side of “Normcore”. More here: http://www.quora.com/Typography/What-is-this-typeface-and-why-do-some-designers-use-this-kind-of-typeface
