If I ever get an email from anyone using comic sans I sense they will be a goofball in real life. If a bloke, they will be the type who wears loony tunes shiny polyester boxers, and maybe a novelty tie. If a woman they will subscribe to those websites where owners dress their pets in bibs looking miserable…and insist on forwarding it on to you. Daily.
I was very happy to read here and here that some students of the Royal College of Art have created the antedote to all that visual tom-foolery. Introducing Serious Sans! What a smart font. What nice lines. What sharp taste.
After doing a bit of webbery I have found this group who want to put the “sans in comic sans”. (I have to say I love anything with a ‘sans’ gag – ever since I learnt about the quite serious political group sans-cullotes. Men without breeches…haw haw haw.) Ban Comic Sans says comic sans is only appropraite in a few rare occasions. ie – NOT YOUR EMAIL FONT
So PLEASE remove it as your email font. It’s not funny. It’s goofy and stupid. You come across as an idiot. With no taste.
