To be honest its a bit dull and boring, the creative execution doesn't fill you with excitement. Sorry Addiction.

I don't want to be an Anal Annie, but you sent these out with kerning like this? C'mon.

Don't even start me on the headlines.

Massive waste of a great brand.

Oh dear, got to agree with Annie, kerning is non existent. Back to typo class on that one. No excitement to buy a really delicious product. What a poor choice of headline font too, characters sit terribly together (although it may be brand guidelines)
