I came across this funny graphic today by Digital Synopsis, it make me chuckle because I can totally relate! When I see fonts that are stretched out beyond recognition for now apparent reason, I get so irritated that I'm pretty sure it messes with my blood pressure.
So here's a the tip for the day, and I'm not sharing this for the same of my personal health, for the sake of your graphic design portfolio. Don’t EVER stretch out your fonts to the point they are unrecognizable. It’s like shaving your eyebrows and drawing them in arched halfway up your forehead. You just don’t do it.
