    Font clichés

    You know what I mean, right? I don't know how it is where you live, but I am currently living in Lima, Peru and I've came to notice that some fonts are just overused to the point of becoming clichés. Some on the same contexts, but some others in the weirdest ones. For example, I've seen Scriptina used in about 80% of the wedding invitations I've received, but also in logos of spas, restaurants and hair salons. I've also seen Mistral being used as the default "cool" font for some reason I don't get and Luna Bar for handwritten effects. All of those (and some others) are fonts I constantly find in different establishments, brands and places around the city, so I was wondering how it was in other places.

    What fonts do you consider clichés? Is there some font you stumble upon the whole time?

    Veneer

    I think Veneer is the most common font I'm seeing locally (Pasco, WA).

    Apercu is the newest font i've seen used everywhere. It's literally becoming a cliche overnight

    I think Arial is everywhere. As a default font M.Office. Cheers!

    I vote for Cooper Black. It's overused -- and it's ugly.

    I'm sort of heartbroken that Thirsty Script and Lavanderia are sort of becoming font clichés... they're the cool "hipster" fonts. The thing is, I LOVE them. But I've started avoiding using them because they're everywhere right now.

    unfortunately, Impact and Futura are way over used.
