Very useful for a Font Lorry idea. This will change Font Lorry forever!

I’ve been discussing the Pepsi Raw brand on Twitter with Magda Nieto and then I came across this font. It’s really cool. It looks a bit like something you’d see in an Alien film.

First up is Jaskinder Sehra (I think...

It doesn’t crash but something triggers what I call the ‘fat font’ bug. Safari 4 renders Helvetica Bold; bolder. This is terrible. Legibility drops 10x. This used to happen in 3...
