Funnily enough this is the second time I’ve been asked to use it recently and I’m really at a loss how to answer in a professional manner. I may just direct them hereThe fonts a bit boring, can we use something different. Hmm, what do we use normally... Comic Sans, yes that’s it. Can we use Comic Sans.
Thousands of 'em. McSweeney's doesn't just do monologues, though, it's aHad a flick through the other monologues and I think that's the best. Or are there other gems too?
I'll give you Comic Sans & Papyrus (although there's a place for every font) but Impact?I see papyrus everywhere and it makes me die a little bit inside. I've seen it used on two shop signs and in an advert in the local paper just today alone.
When I see fonts like Comic Sans, Papyrus, Impact, or a combination of all 3 plus 5 others used in one place, I instantly think the design was either a DIY job, or was done by someone with has a cracked copy of Photoshop as a favour to their friend.
Ahh, Futura now you're talking, one of my all time faves together with Palatino if I want a serif font.True, Helvetica is a little 'cliche'. Using it shows you have an understanding of design, but more likely because you read on a design forum that it's a 'design font'.
Personally, I'm loving Andale Mono (except for the weird lowercase 'L') and Futura atm
