27 Photos That Definitively Prove That Font Choice Matters

List RulesVote up the fonts that tell an entirely different message than expected.

Choosing the right font seems like a trivial marketing decision, but one major font misstep could change your entire business. Though most are aware of wrong fonts to use for your resume or website (looking at you, Arial), font choice in design is still being navigated; unfortunately for some it's taken them into some unsafe waters. Below you will find examples proving that fonts really do matter. It's an epic collection of font fails and funny fonts that weren't intended to be funny at all.

If you're a graphic designer, take heed of these epic design fails, and let this photo gallery serve as a friendly reminder that a typeface fail could be the kiss of death for your next client. And if you're a professional font masochist looking to for ideas to create your next collection of famous fonts for all the wrong reasons, that's okay too.
