This sign is above the apartment that my friends Amy and John rented for a night in Split, Croatia.

I found this perfect example of bad fonts at work... the Nasaline Junior packaging, which uses not just Comic Sans (or Chalkboard, as Allan pointed out... something similar), but Mistral as well! I just had to post it for my friend David, who shares an interest in these sorts of things.

 

Oh, and the illustration of the evil freckled demon-child shoving a nasal irrigation syringe up his nose is also of interest, I think.

haven't eaten here yet, but must give it a try . . .

[edit: this is genuine, not shopped...]

I hypothesize that font obsession is pervasive enough to make any font joke spread like mouth herpes. I made this to test said hypothesis.

just say no to comic sans.

Wallpaper 1920x1200 created with Hannes von Döhrens (HVD Fonts) striking ultra black Sans Serif face »Bumper«.

 

The second typeface in use is Hannes von Döhrens (HVD Fonts) cool and crazy comic face »Comic Serif Pro«. The font license is still »free«!!!

 

HVD Comic Serif Pro

 

So many designers hate Comic Sans. They think people who don't know design are overusing this funny little friendly font, which is nearly every time out of place.

Some years ago, type designer Hannes von Döhren created a free alternative to Comic Sans. The difference: It has serifs and a much cooler look.

The big success of the HVD Comic Serif pushed Von Döhren to create a Pro Version with an eastern, central and Western European language support.

“The HVD Comic Serif should spread all over and make the world a little bit better.” says Hannes.

 

The third typeface in use is—without additional comments—is our »beloved« MS Comic Serif.

Don’t you just want to punch it in its stupid wacky, krazy (type) face?

 

Seriously – join the campaign to ban this evil font.

I spotted this funny sign in a parking lot of a grocery store in a small town in Alberta, Canada.

I considered cropping it so it would just be THERE, but realized how the eyes are drawn to THERE automatically, and decided it would be more interesting to leave it THERE as it is, for better or for worse.

Bad punctuation at the 99p store, with bonus points for Comic Sans.

I wonder what the next line out of the man's mouth will be? Will he be truthful or diplomatic? It's tricky to be certain. There are a lot of variables that can help determine his response. Sometimes discretion is the key and sometimes not. Although if my girlfriend came home with Comic Sans newly installed as her default font I know that I certainly wouldn't be very happy as it would annoy me before she'd even finished her first sentence. But that's probably just me. C'est la vie.

If I wasn't so behind on edit/uploading my 365 I might go on the search for the perfect font and write, "Greetings from California!" above our heads - all postcard style. Maybe next time, so in the meantime...enjoy the big blue sky. We surely did.

 

Also, thank you Amy for your testimonial! :) You rule.

Packages with 1kg of sugar and the Finnish word for "granulated sugar" written in Comic Sans as part of the logo. The word "strosöcker" is misspelled - it is supposed to be "strösocker", the Swedish word for "granulated sugar".

Spotted in South Kensington today. A lovely illustration with the phenomenal font Comic Sans.

She only fights crime in October and her favourite film is Plan 9 From Outer Space.

I think (and hope) that Comic Sans will soon be the new black, again. If it isn't already...

The comic sans pub (The Far Side) at 144 Stockwell Road between Brixton and Stockwell tube station. Taken on my SonyErricson mobile phone during my walk to work from Clapham North tube. It was nice and quiet about 9:50am on 22 July 2005. But, 10 minutes later a suspected terrorist (a running man from cops) is shot up the road at Stockwell tube station.

Design for celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Comic Sans

 

Quote & Design by: +Joanna Ortynska at +Muses Touch

A2 Poster made in Illustrator for the 20th anniversary of the (In)famous Comic Sans font.

 

Knowing how much this font is being hated by designers I wanted to create a quote that keeps the hate or love for the font somewhere in the middle...according to wikipedia (Yup! The font made it even to wikipedia!) the font got his bad name due to people using it in a wrong way...writing serious stuff in a comic font...hence the color choice.

 

When should you use comic sans you might ask yourself?

According to the bottom source:

Comic Sans is never an acceptable font unless you are an 8 year old girl writing a poem about unicorns.

Design a day final

Testing Mr Clayson's wonderful IE CSS discovery, with some quick changes.

 

All browsers get the basic version. IE7 and modern browsers get the full CSS after that, but IE6 gets it's own special stylesheet (above).
