Not every designer has enough experience to work with type correctly. Many designers overlook this, considering fine-tuning optional and invisible. But it is exactly at the sense level that users first have rejection, and then even disgust, which negatively affects the whole project:
 

  1. Unreadable text
  2. Violation of meaning
  3. “Beautiful” fonts become ugly
  4. Poor readability
  5. Confusion
  6. Users frustration
  7. Terrible accessibility
  8. Decreased understanding
  9. Lost users
