:noes: No! Not Comic Sans you designers out there say? But more on that horrific typeface (of which I am guilty using; to my horror).

:iconballoonsplz: HAPPY BIRTHDAY VICTORIA!!  :iconballoonplz:
Yes, you know who you are :meow:

First of all, I'd like to wish my flatmate, Victoria, a happy birthday trip to New Zealand and hope you have fun Sky diving over there. So yeah, yesterday I went to a brilliant pub near the city and what an amazing place it was! It was a beautiful pub, the food was amazing and they had miniature golf :meow:

I'll see you next Saturday/Sunday or when ever you get back from the land of the long white cloud. :meow:


The horror of Comic Sans
Yes well I'm doing an assignment for Typography and decided to research why Comic Sans was so hated by designers. And yes I myself am guilty of using Comic Sans in my work. (The Dalek Assassin comic but I will change the font next time) but yeah anyway.

Going to the botanical Gardens tomorrow with Cebonar to draw plants. I haven't been to the gardens in a long time. I expect to experience NOSTALGIA!!!

It wasn't an essay, it was a presentation. But thank you very much for the intrest. The bottom line of Comic sans is that it was over and inappropriately used (Such as engravings on tombstones and warning signs etc...)

I thought comic sans was mostly unpupular because it had been over-used so much during some period? Supposedly people never got over its over-use, even now... that's what I've heard anyway.

Not over used during some period. over used in general since it's creation in 1994. It's mainly hated because of inappropriate use on warnings, signs and even on gravestones. Designers just hate it because of that but Typographyers hate it because of it's poor use of kerning and structure.

So why is it hated so much? I know one of my tutor's at colege threatened to fail us if we used it (as a joke of course).

In typography terms (the study of fonts) it's a very bad typeface. The kerning is poor and it's often used by amatuer designers and people with no design sense.

It's overused basically...

Lol yep. You can tell a course is doing its job when your way of thinking changes drasticaly. For us animators its you no longer see the real world but everything as if it were in Maya (the 3D modeling program)
