SchoolComp: Poster2-Comic Sans by angelaacevedo SchoolComp: Poster2-Comic Sans by angelaacevedo
EDIT: Updated File
• An updated version of my previous poster.
• Changed typeface to "Interstate"
• Fix the kerning and leading along with some of the copy.
• Added color.

-----------------------------------------------------
Well this project is [I say 'is' because theres 4 more I need to do] a snazzy one. I'll tell you what, I'm really beginning to like my Type Hierarchy course at Ai.

Anyway, this is for that class, another project based on Typography. We need to create 5 posters base on solely Type. We can use pictures and vectors but the theme must be a Font style. So I submitted my Garamond Book cover [link] as one submission and created this one today.

I really had this in mind for a while and this project let me execute it. I really dislike Comic-sans. Me and millions of other designers, so I decided to create a sort'of spoof poster. I think this is the first time I have EVER used C*mic S*ns.

• Program - Adobe Illustrator
• Photos - none
• Font - Helvetica Neu and C*mic S*ns [ugh]
• Texture/Vectors - none
• Brushes - none
• Body text was taken from wikipedia . org

Criticism is encouraged. Shout out to my boys at Fresh (Aes)thetics [link] for the little witty name inspiration.

Eight years after this was made, Undertale may have given the Comic Sans font a full pardon in the eyes of the internet.

It's also not technically a sans serif font! Look at that capital "C"!

In my high school, we had a poster made by one of the students that threatened to make a girl named Faye punch a bunny every time we used Comic Sans.

I really do wince everytime I see that font used in magazines or on websites, it really makes me want to slap the offender square in the face. :D
Love the poster. :) Though I think the paragraph under "released in 1994" needs to be a little more square to match with the rest of the poster.

Hahaha! The more you guys dislike it, the more I seem to like it and I want to rub it in your face.

I hate it too, at least I used to. But when everyone started hating it, I started using it in spite of them, you can't ban me from using c*mic s*ns if I am using it ironically!~

Helvetica "Neue" is overated in the Graphic Design department, the type of font you see on street signs is a poor and uninteresting choice for certain texts.

You call it 'uninteresting', but a tutor once said on my graphics design course, that a font should be like a glass that holds wine, so clear that you barely notice it.

Haha! I understand this hatred for Comic Sans. I think it is a graphic designer's duty to bannish this font from existence.

They should make t-shirts that say "I Hate Comic Sans"

Fave for sure!! :D

I recently viewed this unspeakable font on a business sign. I felt like cutting my writs, running in circles, while screaming like a banshee!

Of course that was nothing compared to how I felt when one of our "design" teachers produced a document using Arial. I was ready to scream murder!
