The type is fluid but retains enough of the letter form to make it readable.

The type might be good for titles and short bursts of text but its formality and uppercase nature make it difficult to read in short bursts of text.GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAGood

The font is semi formal which fits the nature of the publication and is used in a manner that makes it easy to read.GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAGood

The font is laid out in a short burst which makes its sans serif nature even more easily read.

The type design is all over the place using multiple fonts together in a hodge podge arrangement. THere doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of visual cohesiveness in the type selection.

Two simple fonts were chosen for the short bursts of text and they work well together.

At least two fonts were chosen for this and not only do they read well together but they are legible.

Serif and cursive font fit the styling of the product and work well together.

While I wouldn’t use the cursive font in large blocks of text the thick curvy nature of the type helps with the impression of steam coming out of a coffee pot.

The serif type stands out in its own right from the background and is aided in this by the contrasting color of the type from the background.GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAGood

The type matches the name of the show and is legible enough to be read even when it is done as a pale color.

The thin, almost ripped nature of the font makes it difficult to read against the busy background. This is further compounded by the fact that the type is black.

The type matches the character of the show and the design within it plays off the background without getting lost in it.GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAGood

Despite the fact that the type is technically broken the word can still be read as disconnected. This has as much to do with the type itself as the way it was handled.

The two types don’t really work together and both tend to get lost in the overall design, especially the serif type.

As a single burst of text the font works very well especially as it is placed against a solid background.GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA Bad

While the serif font used in the word Kremlin works well the type used for the Chamber Orchestra does not withstand its counterpart very well and gets lost in it. It’s difficult to read.

The type works well in its use as a title font and is very legible against its background.

The serif font is legible and easily read even at the small size of the button that it was put on.

The type was well used to display its effectiveness. The use of a simple design also helped this.
