  • 1. 7
  • 2. Sin #1 Too Many Fonts Disease Please, limit yourself to two different fonts on your website. Serif + Sans Serif = True Font Love
  • 3. Sin #2 Diet of Bad Color Choices Two words: nail, salon. It's perfect for money laundering, it's a high-volume, cash-preferred business with a discreet workforce. Nobody does mista-meknow-nothing better than Mrs. Mukjayaporn and her gals. Two words: nail, salon. It's perfect for money laundering, it's a high-volume, cash-preferred business with a discreet workforce. Nobody does mista-meknow-nothing better than Mrs. Mukjayaporn and her gals. Not Enough or Too Much Contrast Is the Work of the Devil.
  • 4. Sin #3 Decorative Font Overdose Ding, ding ding ding. Ding ding ding ding ding ding. Ding. DING. Ding ding, ding; ding ding ding ding ding ding. Ding. Ding ding ding ding, ding ding ding. Consuming too many decorative fonts can cause permanent nausea.
  • 5. Sin #4 Chronic Capital Letter Fatigue YOU... ARE TROUBLE. I'M SORRY THE KID HERE DOESN'T SEE IT, BUT I SURE AS HELL DO. YOU ARE A TIME BOMB. TICK, TICK, TICKING. AND I HAVE NO INTENTION OF BEING AROUND FOR THE BOOM. WELL... YOU KNOW HOW THEY SAY, IT'S BEEN A PLEASURE? IT HASN'T. Reading Capital Letters for too long can cause hearing loss. (Get it? It’s considered yelling.)
  • 6. Sin #5 You have Comic Sans Cancer Marie, I said Cheetos, not Fritos. I must've said Cheetos like ten times. You need me to write it down for you? Well, I'm just saying, y'know, I said Cheetos. Ch-ch-ch sound. Virtually impossible to confuse Cheetos with Fritos it seems to me. There’s nothing comical about it.
  • 7. Sin #6 An Emphasis Epidemic Don Eladio, please. I didn't sell anything. I apologize if you are offended by my method of obtaining this meeting. I merely took the initiative. I meant no insult. Only use one. A widespread outbreak is cause for great concern and may require a vaccine.
  • 8. Sin #7 Microfont Dysfunction Goodbye, Walter. I don't owe you a damn thing. All of this -- falling apart like this -- is on YOU. We had a good thing, you stupid son of a bitch! We had Fring. We had a lab. We had everything we needed and it all ran like clockwork. You could've shut your mouth, cooked, and made as much money as you ever needed. It was perfect. But no! You just had to blow it up. YOU! And your pride and your ego. You just had to be the man. If you'd done your job, known your place, we'd all be fine right now. Make sure your font size is at least 10px. The only cure for microfont is enlargement.
  • 9. Font Surgeon General An Important message from the Font Surgeon General and his BFF: We hope that you recognize the serious nature of these deadly sins. A diet of standard web safe fonts should be strictly adhered to. Neglecting to follow our prescription, your website will look schizophrenic. Don’t let this happen to your website. Please take action immediately to avoid committing one of these deadly sins. Fontly Yours, Thomas Typographer Font Surgeon General BFF
