ADVENTURES IN THE DESIGN WORLD™: How Bold Can Darth Vader Be?


This morning I received the above graphic (which originated at Ironic Sans) from The Dancing Machine. And while I was impressed by the incredible cleverness of it, I couldn't help but be inspired to come up with something typographically snarky in response (see below).

NICE!!!

I especially like the last three:

TPM: Shaky; unsure of itself. Upper-case "M" starts confidently but quickly thins into near-meaninglessness.

AotC: More elegant, forward-facing, yet ultimately thin. Sloppier than it appears at first glance.

RotJ: "Comic Sans." Ugh. QED.

Although I'd've gone for some sort of semi-funky serif font for A New Hope, to try and capture the sort of "old school" feel Lucas was going for. Maybe like this?

Or perhaps I don't really know what I'm talking about.

Ah, but then the joke would fall apart -- I can't use a serif font when I'm comparing scripts.
