    I'm another who hates Helvetica. After watching the documentary, I can understand why some people worship it so, but still... I just can't stand that lowercase "e."

    absolutely! Calibri is driving me insane!
    and not like any of these fonts are necessarily "bad" or the type designers suck or something (lol far from it, Matthew Carter, Lucas de Groot, i think not lol)
    they are simply over-used and over-rated. and the fonts actually arent that special looking either i must admit. much nicer sexier fonts could have become the standard system fonts had they been designed a lot earlier. particularly Arial arrghhh!!!

    Scriptina. I see designers are still using it and it burns my soul. Such a tragedy,

    Calibri. As the default in Office its becoming ubiquitous. I tolerate it in personal use, but as soon as I see it used in any publication or formal piece of work my heart sinks - some people just don't take the time to make their work look good; they don't care.

    Thanks for everyones contributions so far! It's interesting to see what grinds on other designers nerves, although it generally seems to be Comic Sans!

    I think the question I should have asked is 'How much do you hate Comic Sans?'! :)

    Has anyone actually seen Comic Sans put to good use? I imagine because of its style, it lends itself to being used in the kids school type genre.

    Anyways, thanks again for all your input, keep it coming!

    R :)

    I am by no means a Microsoft hater, but the gastly Comic Sans is a pain to the eye and continues to be used by many, many people. Arial is another eternally annoying font, taking its basic design cues from Helvetica but ridding it completely of its inherent elegance.

    Mussica/Mussica Swash.

    I have a rookie co-worker who discovered this font and absolutely LOVES it. Uses it on EVERYTHING, including NEWSPAPER HEADLINES.

    And the editor and other paginators (who are NOT designers at all) let her use it when she's paginating. They think it's SO creative.

    (She recently used Mussica Swash and Aphrodite together in header of the SAME AD.)

    So we have a newspaper full of ads and heads with the SAME GOOFY, IMPROPERLY USED FONT.
