Funnily enough, I actually don't think they do, if those are the kind of campaigns they're coming up with. Effective.
If the font were Comic Sans, would you change your tune?
But of course. Type matters!
You are such a serif whore.
I tend to use sans more often but a well-placed serif is fairly pleasing, sure.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

I used to be able to tell an indie, lefty book by two qualities—bleached, almost bright white paper and some kind of sans serif font. Helvetica means the revolution or something, I guess. I haven't noticed it as much in the last decade or so, however. The conspiracy is infiltrating serifs.

Since Google dropped them and started using sans, we had to switch sides so as not to be implicated.

Helvetica is very polarizing. I don't mind it as long as the kerning and leading is done with purpose.

I am, of course, pretty dim on this angle of presentation (I'm stronger on the content of the text), but aren't simpler, more straight-forward fonts the better choice?
