Can you think of a more awful compliment than “quirky”? It’s one of those words people quickly reach for when they’re trying to be flattering instead of hurtful, and it means nothing, kind of like “neat,” “nice,” and “interesting.” Call me a dickhead or call me fuckin’ weird, just don’t call me quirky. (BTW, I’m totally guilty of using the word, particularly when describing movies I hate like Juno to somebody older, like my parents.)
Which brings me to the SandraOh font, described by an online font site as “a quirky modern take on the classic serif fonts of the 20th century, updated here with a wiggle in her walk and a giggle in her talk…Perfect for indie films or youtube videos.”
See what I mean? I guess it’s wicked cool to have a font named after you, but if I were Sandy, I’d be pissed.
