Has anyone noticed the overuse of ITC Avant Garde these days? It seems no matter where you turn, someone is using it. It's right up there next to Helvetica and VAG rounded as a ludicrously spammed font.

For example:

Hitchhikers Guide titles and advertising.
Graphik magazine (admittedly they had it first, so no problem there).
Some french fashion mag (can't remember, just flicked through it at a friends).
Service point in store signage.
Aero adverts.
Garbage - Bleed Like Me, poster and packaging.

I'm sure there's more, it seems to be everywhere. GRR!
