We are using the 20th anniversary of Comic Sans to take on cancer.
In its short history no other font has caused as much division as Comic Sans; not only does it divide opinions, but it is also a font that everyone seems to have a view on. So extreme are these views that websites have even been set up to have the font banned from use!
We want to harness the energy and opinions that surround Comic Sans and show that it can have a positive effect on society. So why not put this divisive font to good use and use its 20th anniversary to raise money for cancer research.
Designers and artists where asked to represent what Comic Sans means to them. Do they love it or hate it? What would the world be like without this font? Should we wish it a happy birthday?
The results are showcased in a curated exhibition which aims to challenge the way we look at this divisive font.
