What happened at the Oscars this year is the result of bad design. The name of the event, “Oscars,” is the largest item on the card, centered at the top. Below it, the name of the winner is written in bold with quotation marks around it. This makes sense as it is easier to guide the presenters by showing them exactly what to say. However, the name of the category is minuscule. This doesn’t make sense. Everyone at the event knows where they are, therefore it does not make sense to have that be the most prominent category. Instead of it, the name of the category should be the first thing a presenter sees when they open the envelope. What happened at the Oscars this year shows just how important typographical design is.
