What? I said it all in the title.
Look, I think it's funny to make fun of Comic Sans. But I have to admit that I had mixed feelings when I saw this image earlier this week.
I doubt very seriously that the Comic Sans does more to damage the company in question's Fortune 500 status/image than does the cost of another employee making another sign. My advice: make fun of Comic Sans on your own time. GBTW.
Four Design Links is a review of the design- and ethics-related stories we've been reading online this week. This week: color wheels, creativity, the history of Comic Sans, and 365 days of Less.
1. Old-Fashioned Color Wheels
Imprint is running a history of color wheels. Part one is out, featuring the 18th and 19th century. The contrast between the Victorian layouts and bright colors is almost too much. To my eye, they don't look 200-plus years old.
A little typography humor for your Friday.
