Everyday vs. extraoridnary

Can good type becoming boring? I think so. Type that is designed to be read clearly and easily identified is commonplace in documents such as newspapers and legal documentation. We are exposed to type faces like Times and Helvetica everyday. We have become so accustomed to them that they have become somewhat mundayne. We get excited about the typefaces that appear in special documents like wedding invitations and special events signs. The sad thing is that these unique typefaces are often mistakenly viewed as a cut above the rest, but the reality of the matter is that they only serve limited purposed. It is the versitile everyday fonts that should be seen as extroidinary.
