For this weeks blog post, I chose to change the font Arial.
In the example below, I started off with the word readable typed in Arial font.
For the second portion, I chose every second letter and flipped it horizontally.
This makes it a little harder to read then the original text.
I then flipped the two beginning letters and last letter.
This is now a hard to read word.
I believe this can be a valid design tool in certain circumstances.
If the message your are trying to portray is lackadaisical, then this would work perfectly.
However, this style would only work for a small portion of designs.
Many people have enough trouble reading a sign while driving.
Readability is almost always important, to insure people are understanding the concept of the wording.
