    Museo is a great typeface by definition, but it gets tiring easily... luckily it kind of slipped out into oblivion already.

    Agreed. That is an abomination.

    That god awful Brandon Grotesque is everywhere I look. Especially on TV ads. It's getting ridiculous.

    It also provides the simple explanation that any typeface can grow to look bad to my perception if it is consistently used in bad ways.

    Like Scriptina was probably not intended to be used in some formats where it looks particularly unfavorable.

    Good fonts die in the hands of poor users sadly. But great designers can revive most with excellent applications so I guess it's on both sides.

    I'm an expat living in Seoul, South Korea right now and I swear, typography is non existent. Every wedding invitation I get is full of Script. Yes, Script. Remember that really old school one on like Windows 95? Not to mention Script in all capital letters. I work in a office with other designers that do the main advertisements for a huge company here and their work is amateur at best. Frankly, it's probably because they've were educated here and there isn't much inspiration to other than what is normal and expected.

    Nevis Bold and Populaire. Large food companies seem to love to overuse popular fonts it seems.

    Mistral, Papyrus, Choc. Whenever I see them I chuckle under my breath then die a little inside.

    Gotham

    Gotham is a great font but heavily overused to the point that is becoming a cliche

    It's tricky -- when is it a matter of a good, versatile, well-crafted typeface getting widespread, well-warranted use, and when is it a cliche? Everyone has their own taste, but designers can be like hipsters -- as soon as something is popular, it's no longer cool (even if it's perfectly good). Complain about fonts like Gotham all you want -- there's a reason it's so popular. To me, a cliche is when you see awful things like Papyrus and Comic Sans or some faux-Asian font on a takeout menu.
