The Comic Sans typeface is one of those things that everyone loves to hate—so what does the person who designed it think about its notorious reputation as “the world’s most contentious font”?
Video network Great Big Story recently released an animated short film about how Comic Sans came about—the video features the voice of its creator, designer Vincent Connare, telling the story from his point of view.
Even though this now-infamous typeface—which could be found all over the world—remains hated by most designers, Connare still thinks that “conceptually, it is one of the best things [he] has ever done”.
Watch the short film below for the first-person account of how Comic Sans was created.
