Give Comic Sans A Break, Okay?
Typographer Vincent Connare, the man behind Comic Sans, was asked by Dezeen about the font. His answer was excellent:
"There are 200-300 fonts installed on every computer but people pick Comic Sans because it is different and it looks more like handwriting and does not look like an old school text book. It is a personal decision. The same could be asked of why do people like Ugg boots, Justin Bieber or pink tracksuits."
