    There aren’t good or bad fonts — only bad uses of fonts

    Eh, there are certainly poorly designed typefaces. Missing or poorly designed features, thrown together analphabetic symbols/glyphs, or an awful kerning table are all things that could mean there is a "bad" typeface.

    However, that might be looking too far under the hood in regards to who the article is aimed at.

      That's certainly true -- half of Dafont.com being the operative culprit.

      For newcomers I wanted to get them thinking about how they're going to use fonts to create a "voice" rather than decisively saying "this is my font, because it looks cool." But you're right -- there definitely are poorly-designed typefaces.
