British Designer Wants to Stop ‘Comic Sans Criminals’

In another anti-Comic Sans project, British designer Matt Dempsey has created the Comic Sans Criminal website meant to educate people on the merits and demerits of the maligned font.

“Originally, Comic Sans was made for the little comic book-style help speech bubbles in programs like Microsoft Word,” the designer writes. But it wasn’t long until corporations started using the typeface for inappropriate means, like in a ‘Danger’ sign, for example.


While Dempsey acknowledges that some dyslexics claim Comic Sans is easier to read, he offers alternatives that “may suit your content better”.
