Kidz Klozet - Put this sign in the closet.

Click to enlarge.

I took this picture today when I stopped by a local convince store. It's a resale boutique, for kids, much like a Salvation Army or Savers that has only children's clothes.

What's wrong with this sign? Right off the bat it's Comic Sans. Even for a children's store this font is tacky and terrible. Second, each letter is a different color. Very distracting, and down right annoying. Brings me back to the day we opened up Word and discovered the word art feature. At least there are no dropshadows or gradients. And then there is the thick black outline around the letters... well it does make it stand out a bit more...
And this isn't graphics related, but what is up with the spelling? The spelling of the words "kids closet" is kind of juvenile and not really in anymore...

Oh, the the lettering on the door (not pictured) was just "Kidz Klozet" in plain Arial bold.

Again, there are many many other "kid friendly" or "fun" fonts to use instead of Comic Sans. Kid Print is a nice one. Easy to read, and has the child like interity you would probably need for a children related store.

It's spelled "juvenile", not "juvinile". I love the irony that you misspelled a word in the same statement complaining about spelling.

Priceless.
