I wonder, did he make the whole font, or only the letters for the
word mageia? If he only made the letters (which is likely), then we
will always need to use a different font for text.

The font choice is part of the Style set of decisions, so if the text
is editable, then it can be changed to whatever we all decide.

I wonder whether the variation in the fonts would be less obvious, if
there was more white space on the poster? If the background was
white, and you used colours rather than images to break up the layout?

Just my 2c...
