Help us make a design decision

Post  Dr Ezra Sidran on Wed Jan 25, 2017 9:21 pm

We've got another quick survey for you on a design question. If you could please just give us a few seconds and tell us which of two typefaces you prefer, it would really help us a lot. Bonus: you get a sneak peak at the incredible interactive Order of Battle Table editor!

I prefer the simpler, bolder background font rather than the top-layer more flowery font.

EDIT: Oops, didn't check the link to see what the actual choice is! I actually prefer the simple bold main sheet typeface over both the Phectic and Monastic fonts. Both seem too fussy and flowery to me. Can you go with the background sheet font throughout? Generally I think, designs that use a single font are easier on the eye than layouts that use two different fonts.

It's very easy to go overboard with Victorian typography!
Thanks for the feedback! If you are interested, there's a formal voting system at http://general-staff.com/ to register your vote. Looks like simplicity is winning by a mile!
