Good typography/ Bad typography

For our seminar on 11/11/2011 we had to bring three examples of good and three examples of bad typography. These were my examples, the top line being good type. A point that was raised during the seminar was, was a measure of how good the typography design is, how legible the words are. I would disagree with this, because some typography design, hasn’t actually been designed to be legible, they are using the letters to draw with rather than to communicate. I think that this subject requires a very personal opinion, and therefore you can’t put a general rule to working it out. But perhaps one thing you could say is that typography is there for a reason, and if it isn’t serving its function, be it to draw, sell, read, then it could be classed as bad typography.
