Comics Sans for Cancer

posted by Anna Chayasatit June 13, 2014

Using Comic Sans can be such a terrible pain for designers – of course a different, incomparable kind of pain from those suffering from cancer – but what if using the font can help beat cancer?

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Chris Flack, Renee Quigley and Jenny Theolin are bringing this sans-serif script typeface to life by asking creatives all over the world to design a poster that represents what Comic Sans means to them. Originally designed by Vincent Connare in 1994 and arguably one of the most-hated fonts voted by graphic designers, the submitted posters will be showcased in the forthcoming online exhibition and all proceeds will be going straight to Cancer Research UK. Let’s give this a try, shall we!

The deadline is 20th June 2014. For submission guidelines, please click here.
