Yes, they put out some wonderful typefaces. Yes, I've used them too. But we can all stand to see a little less Wisdom Script and Onramp flooding our Dribbble feed.

The Lost Type rocks. Enough said.
Not disputing that. Just simply asking people to push themselves some more.
Word up brotha!
I do love a bit of Wisdom Script & Duke though :-)
This would have looked better in Duke.
Agreed! I am getting tired of seeing Wisdom Script everywhere.
You're tellin me that Wisdom is over used in a message set in Trade Gothic?
This could have been hand lettered for greater effect.
It's actually Ultramagnetic, not Trade Gothic. I do see your point though.
I don't care what fonts are posted unless they are
and Helvetica has had its day.
you forgot copperplate gothic, davey!
You should be choosing typefaces based on the needs of the client, not what gets you the most "likes" on a Dribbble shot.
Drawing lines in the sand like this only belittles the work of a designer. It suggests that the role of a designer is to "make things pretty" rather than to solve a problem and/or effectively communicate a message to an audience.
Do what is best for your client/work. Period.
yea fuck that shit.
Pat said it best...
