    I’m looking for some feedback to see if my mind/eyes are playing tricks. The title of this site is “Sometimes You Break A Clarinet” and I’m wondering if the font for the title looks pixelated.

    I think it does look a bit pixelated but I’m not sure if that’s just my eyes playing tricks on me or my mind being a little OCD. If you think the image looks pixelated, advice on how to improve it would be appreciated.

    The font in the title is League Gothic

    I’m thinking of switching the title font to Junction

    The font in the menu is Londrina. I put this design aside for a few weeks and now I’m not sure I like Londrina for the menu, my mind is going back and forth.

    I’m with howlermiller. The font looks nice and crisp (Windows 7 PC / iPad 3), but the dropshadows (?!) and/or edges in the image look smudgy.

    I’m not sure what drop shadow you’re referring to Marco. I don’t think there is any.

    I did have a 3D box transition for the links but I’ve decided against that, in favor of the simpler colour change on hover method.

    The issue you’re having is due to poor hinting.

    What does “poor hinting” mean? How do I fix that?
