Comic Sans is such a piece of shit font that even its creator Vincent Connare called it a ‘particularly ugly letter form’ and tried to have it destroyed before it was released. Unfortunately for him, someone thought it would be a good idea to bring it out anywhere and now it’s the source of much ridicule whenever anyone tries to use it for pretty much anything because it looks so comical and stupid.
The guys over at The Comic Sans Project though have started a mission to see it thoroughly ingrained into our lives by trying to convert every iconic logo they can think of into it. Why? ‘Because Helvetica is so 2011.’ Quite. Basically, the whole project demonstrates the difference between an expensive and awesome corporate logo and an eight year old’s attempt at a logo on Paint. If you couldn’t tell the difference already that is.
Here are some of the best ones they’ve come up with so far:
