I took the Alicia Keys photo ages ago, thinking the unusual typeface was Pr*tty. But the more I saw it sitting and waiting in my photo library, the more I began to question my judgement. Then, just a couple days ago, the typeface was featured on the front page of MyFonts and I suddenly had a tangible product at which to target my indecision: Dime Store. (link over to see the whole font)
For the most part I still quite enjoy most of the letterforms, but certain others don’t seem to work. The S’s, for example, feel incomplete. And the upper halves of the B and R sit awkwardly atop their lower halves. The lowercase h and n are not right either. So I have to wonder if the designer didn’t do enough to create a true family here.
