Last week, we wrote an article about the common graphic design sins that some designers commit. One point we stated is the use of horrible fonts such as: Papyrus, Curlz MT, and Comic Sans. Today, we’re going to talk about more of probably the most hated font in the world that is Comic Sans. Why is the so-called font bashed very much by typographers and graphic designers alike? There’s even a website dedicated to ban it.
Just a brief idea of what we’re talking about, Comic Sans is a font designed by the typographic engineer Vincent Connare for Microsoft and was first released on Windows 95. It was created as part of a Microsoft program for a dog’s speech bubbles.
