The Global Curse of Comic Sans

As readers of Needmore Notes are surely already aware, I despise the font Comic Sans. In Design Observer’s The Global Curse of Comic Sans, Jessica Helfand notes:

In Typophile’s online forums, a designer rightly observes that the vast majority of laymen love Comic Sans. “Why do you think it’s all over the place?” he asks. “No ‘decent’ corporation cares what a minority of specialists thinks.”

And I suppose that’s a good enough point. Let them have their cartoon font. It seemingly comes with every computer ever built. I’m just praying I don’t go blind from seeing it one more time.
