These are fake album covers I made with Affinity Photo for the Album Cover Challenge thing. I also included the a simple logo I made for my project

Besides the kerning of most of the texts here should get some adjustments—is it just me or is the font used for "The Lewis Sherman Orchestra" horribly unbalanced and really unprofessionally looking? (Not your fault, it's the font designer's choice.) In particular the "S" looks out of place to me.

No, it’s not just you!

The serifs on the S shouldn’t be hanging in midair like that. The ‘thin’ strokes of the W are too thick, the L and the E are too wide, and the O and the C are too narrow. I could go on....

Thanks for confirming! The font reminded me of some "elegant serif" attempted variant of one of those "Kindergarten"/Kids fonts which use random and inconsistent letters. (Though badly done and latter usually make more sense.)

Yea, I used fonts from Dafont and picked em quickly since I was recording the screen.

The "S" does look stupid as hell in relation to the other letters in that font
