Comic Sans MS Font

Comic Sans MS is a whimsical and informal typeface that has engendered love and hate since its appearance in 1994. Designed by Vincent Connare, Comic Sans imitates the lettering used in comic books or so he tells us: it certainly lacks the angularity found in other faces of this genre, relying instead on rounded back forms and irregular strokes for its friendly, lighthearted look. As such, it is likely one of the more commonly used typefaces for children’s material and other applications where formality is not the key.

Many designers and typographers fight against the casualness of its design, arguing that it is not an appropriate style for something professional or formal. Its linkage to amateur design and overuse inappropriately has brought Comic Sans MS a general reputation as a font not to be used in severe design projects.

However, proponents of Comic Sans MS like its readability and lovely friendly nature, especially for environments where a light or approachable tone is intended.

Comic Sans MS is unique because it is easy to read. The exaggerated forms of letters and the great spaces between words make it very legible, reducing stress for people with dyslexia or other reading problems. In addition to this, the informal style can help a person feel less intimidated by something that is usually considered formal reading, which in turn can improve readability and comprehension, especially in educational materials, for young or struggling readers. Comic Sans MS has become one of the most iconic and widely used typefaces despite the strong and questionable reputation it has. Its creative visual form became one of the most recognizable in hundreds or even thousands of memes, parody designs, and almost all kinds of humorous projects.

You may love or hate Comic Sans MS, but I think all would agree that it has an impressive place in typographic history and is a powerful reminder of how strong fonts can be to stir up emotions or arguments.

I hope you love using this font as much as I do! If you need help installing fonts, check out these guides: Microsoft’s article for Windows users and Apple’s article for Mac users.
