I was shocked, I tell you, simply SHOCKED when I Googled “Comic Sans font” and this post entitled Why You Hate Comic Sans appeared from http://designforhackers.com
Here’s a little snippet…
Everyone loves to hate Comic Sans. The child-like handwriting font is so infamous, there is a movement to try to ban it. Mention its name to the common layman (aside from a preschool teacher), and you will likely get a chuckle, mention it to a trained designer, and you’ll get a look of disgust. Why hate on this easy breezy happy font?
The truth of the matter is that I love love LOVE Comic Sans. Not for every type of writing, of course–I mean it wouldn’t be appropriate for an obituary, you know what I mean? But for emails, it lends a certain joie de vivre that no other font can match.
My very special blogging friend at Misifusa’s Blog-The Presents of Presence also loves this font, so all is good! P.S. Check her out; she’s amazing.
Who designed this joyful font?
