  1. Oh, and we added the italics, which did help a little, but had to take them down because they weren’t working on our homepage feature. 🙁

  2. Tough one, I played with it for a minute and nothing looks great but italicizing the ‘h’ and ‘t’ helps a little.

    Someone tell me how The Change-Up poster is offense. 😉

  3. Good point. We’ve changed the capitalization — not sure if this helps or makes it worse. Unfortunately, it just sounds better than it looks. We are totally open to renaming this post if anyone has any better ideas….?
