Mediocre™

By TypeArt Foundry, Inc

These fonts were inspired by a design seen on a movie poster from a few years ago. Our Disorder Bold font was converted into jagged edges and then the cracks were applied in appropriate places. The bold version of Mediocre has cracks (or splits) in the character shapes which are suitable for setting the type in larger point sizes. When setting the bold font in smaller sizes, you might find that the breaks are too small to look effective. In such cases, we suggest that you use the bonus Mediocre Wisecrack fonts whose character shapes, spacing and kerning are identical to that of the bold fonts, but whose cracks are a little wider. When using Mediocre at larger point sizes, you are likely to type words which use two or more of the same vowel characters. You might find that your design will look more dynamic if you use alternate versions of the duplicate letters. Because most of the accent characters in this family are slightly different from their unaccented root characters, you can use them whenever you require alternate vowels. After typing the accent character, in your page layout or illustration program, you can then draw a white box and place it over top of the unwanted accent. If you are looking for a companion family which has similar character shapes but WITHOUT all the wisecracks, check out our Disorder family.. In the PC version of this font family the style names are slightly different from those used in the Mac versions. But the fonts are otherwise identical.
