Web Find: Comic Sans Project

As a graphic designer, I cannot stand the font Comic Sans. My mother is an elementary school teacher who absolutely loves the font and she knows if she shows me anything she has made with the font on it, I will cringe. I do find the font acceptable for children and teachers, but aside from that, I don’t think it should be used in an advertisement for the grand opening of a new supermarket.

Even though I hate the font, I do find the Tumblr for the Comic Sans Project rather entertaining. French designers Thomas Blanc and Florian Amoneau of We Are Cephalization take well known logos and remake them using the font Comic Sans. While I hope that no company sees these logos and decides to reinvent their image and use them, its funny to see what Chanel’s logo would look like if created by a child.

On the flipside, for those who dislike the font like me, it is always great to check out Ban Comic Sans.
