Finally Comic Sans has been reinvented…Introducing Comic Neue!There is one cardinal rule of design – NEVER use Comic Sans. Many designers have had to painfully witness the typeface of faux joviality used in business letters, wedding invitations, and even by the Vatican, in a 62-page online photo album commemorating Pope Benedict XVI papacy. Oh dear.
However there is hope. A friend of mine pointed me to a new and improved version and indeed, it is a breath of fresh air.
“The squashed, wonky, and weird glyphs of Comic Sans have been beaten into shape while maintaining the honesty that made Comic Sans so popular. It’s perfect as a display face, for marking up comments, and writing passive aggressive office memos.”
