Font Criminal

January 3, 2011

I first found this witty website on How’s design blog and had to share it with you. This site created by designer Matt Dempsey is a sort of comical plea to stop the abuse of the overused font Comic Sans. In addition I would personally like to propose that the following fonts be added to the “do not abuse” list…Curlz MT, Lucida Handwriting, Papyrus, Zapf Chancery & Brush Script MT. Thank you!

    Curlz should be reserved for Santa and his elves alone. Period. As far as Comic Sans goes, I once had a manager who always used it in every memo she sent out. Not only was it annoying, but I found it hard to take anything she said seriously.
