Who else is tired of the ubiquity of geometric sans serifs?

    I don't really mind this much, somehow.

    I am tired of humanist sans serifs

    They're flagging, which is bad news for those of us who want it to be 2002 again

    But yeah, a lot of the Not Gothams popping up everywhere are too doctrinaire for me. They look good in isolation, but in practice, not so much.

    I prefer the Futura-style geometrics, or the ITC Anna style geometrics to the Not-Gothams.

    But really, I'm actually very boring and love Helvetica

    I'd like to see Twentieth Century get oversaturated again.
  • but geometric sans serifs are the best sans serifs

    I can understand not wanting to see Gotham anymore because of how ubiquitous it is (and frankly, I can't deny that it gets a bit tired), but a lot of my particular favorites are in similar styles

    Humanist type can be hit-or-miss for me; generally I feel like it may work a little better in copy than as headline text, though there are exceptions (the grotesque-inspired Adelle comes to mind).
  • ^^I want to see more Gotham than Not-Gothams.
