About


We are using the 20th anniversary of Comic Sans to take on cancer.


To celebrate the anniversary, over 500 designers and artists from 38 countries have created posters showing what Comic Sans means to them. Do they love it or hate it? What would the world be like without the font everyone seems to love bashing? 

The results, from international designers and studios, as well as emerging and established local talent, are diverse and intriguing. They really challenge the way we look at this divisive font.

The London exhibition showcases 200 of our favourite posters

These include Vincent Connare (Comic Sans creator), his nemesis Ban Comic Sans, Bibliothèque, Build, Bunch Design, Oli Frape, Believe In, Hey Studio, Purpose, Spin, Sawdust, The Partners, Kiosk – and many many more

This may be the first time we publicly admit to having used Comic Sans. We apologise in advance to the design gods for the design sins we are about to commit. Please have mercy on our souls.


A massive Comic Sans style thank you to Dan Bull, Mike Reed and Becky Williams.
