Please: boycott comic sans
Developed by Vincent Connare and released by Microsoft in the mid nineties, this abomination has been plaguing documents and the web ever since. Please don’t let it continue, if only for the bunny’s sake.
I’ll never forget as an undergrad when one of my lecturers used comic sans as the font for the law school handbook. It rankled at the time. It rankles even more so now. I understand that they were trying to strike a more informal, approachable tone, but it still looked terrible and wasn’t fooling anybody.
I had a little less respect for them after that.
No self-respecting lawyer should ever consider using comic sans - for anything. And yes that even includes those in academia!
Yep – it’s all that and more.
