Pain in progress

Making progress is often painful but is this painful progress or just poorly designed type?

It takes great skill to create type that is both attractive and easy to read and a skilful typographer will focus on the shape of the spaces between the letters, not the letters themselves.

Most of us tend not to take a lot of notice of type design unless it is especially attractive, or as in this case; quite dysfunctional. I read "Pain progress" a couple of times before noticing that the sign only appeared when the PA was on and the penny dropped.
