Bloomberg gets it wrong

I have been a huge advocate of the typography and design work that goes on at Bloomberg Businessweek. But the opening spread of this article about Italian law professor Pietro Ichino is an example of really bad typography. If I were to look for an example of badly kerned type, well, this would be it. It’s surprising, coming from the same magazine that produced these spreads I feature recently.

I have no doubt this is just a small bump in the road and I’ll be calling out great new work in the near future.

  1. I am sure that this was done on purpose. But I must agree with you, t does not look good. I personally have nothing against when we, designers stray away from the “rules” (which are meant to be broken occasionally) but we should do it only if it looks good.
