Bad Kerning

What the fuck? I spotted this the first day I stepped foot onto Capital One campus. I had to look away. After walking past, I began to work through it in my mind.

Maybe it was originally in a publication and the hellacious gap is there for the spine? But then I looked again, the gap is not in the center of the page. My god, WHY? Why would you knowingly have letter spacing that huge that it’s unreadable?

You see it? RIGHT? We’re Coo kin’ up somet hing cool.

No. No, you’re not. You’re cooking up a piece of shit, that’s what you’re doing.

I had to start navigating the building in ways to avoid this horrible excuse for design. But alas, after three and half years, my building was renovated and all the blasphemous manifestations of this atrocity have been removed.
