It is NO secret that there are some fonts that are a swear word in the book of design. Comic Sans is amongst the swear words, and in my opinion, it’s not THE worst, but sits alongside others like New Times Roman – no better – no worse!

Perhaps I’m too critical, or perhaps coming from a design background, if a training slide popped up in front of my eyes in Comic Sans, I know my brain would disengage. I couldn’t possibly take the teacher / lecturer seriously after that.

I’d love to know what you think. Drop me a line. Just don’t swear at me or send me a message in Comic Sans! karin@bigmouthdesign.co.uk
