Comic Sans: The red-headed step-child of typography I used to belong to an exclusive club of typographic cognoscenti who would roll their eyes knowingly when a silly font like Comic Sans appeared in print or online. I’ve just realized that my exclusive club has exploded in size when I came across this article. Apparently, there’s an entire movement to ban the font from use. I feel vindicated and a bit more hopeful about the future of typography. I look forward to the day when other design crimes, like swooshes in logos or dumb quotes have their day in court.
