We’d never force-feed our bread …

… but you’d always force letterforms into shapes that make them look even more miserable, huh?

    I dunno. I feel like if any typeface can handle this treatment, the amoebic Hobo can. But yeah, that blob doesn’t need to be there. Kills an otherwise cute concept.

    It’s a prime example where it would have been better to have a lettering artist execute the idea properly. True, Hobo is hard to destroy, eggs will always be egg-shaped. On second glance, I am actually more displeased by the loose spacing than the distortion.

    I am dumbstruck as to why they chose Hobo at all, I can’t see it fitting their brand or even the style of this piece. I totally agree some lettering would have been a better option.
