Artistic Google Goof

The following is a public service announcement:

If your name is Ariel, then “Ariel Bold” would be a great name for a blog.

I don’t really like the side effect that we end up advertising for a proprietary font. People are also named “Vera” but that admittedly doesn’t quite have the same ring.

A proprietary typeface.

A proprietary sucky typeface.

A proprietary sucky typeface with a different spelling.

The playfulness of the reference, to me, makes up for the fact that it’s a reference to Arial.
