@codinghorror thinks that the Roboto font is quite the mallard’s testicles, and I’ve put together a version of the letter avatars code that renders Roboto avatars. This is a rendering of all letters/numbers in both the existing font (top) and Roboto (bottom)
A few questions for the assembled experts:
- Do the avatars look better in Roboto than Helvetica?
- Is the ‘D’ off-centre too nasty to be reasonable? (I can’t push it right without making the rest of the avatars look crap, unless we start having per-letter offsets – which I’ll do if I have to, but I’d prefer not to…)
- Are there any other letters which look unacceptably wonky to anyone?
Thanks for any insights.
