I stumbled across this funny site today- I believe it's very relevant to this discussion!

When i first started my Graphic design course one of the first things my lecturer said was "First rule of Graphic Design, dont use comic sans" and everyone laughed. Yeah its a bit of a joke, its more about how culturally its not viewed as a proffesional level typeface and is associated with amatuerity.

What im saying is Comic sans is the cutural antagonist to capitalism   ;D ;D

As someone who also studied in graphic design, I can also confirm that the same exact thing happened too.

Thought of this thread when reading a post from itsnicethat today regarding comic-sans being the butt of the joke by designers.

(https://www.itsnicethat.com/news/dyslexia-scotland-theres-nothing-comic-about-dyslexia-graphic-design-051022)

After reading the post, I myself am dyslexic and honestly I find this somewhat to be an attempt at pandering and rather apolitical. I've never fallen to my knees and been like "If only this was written in comic sans!!" Sure dyslexic typefaces do help of course, but is comic sans really a saving grace? interested to hear what others have to say!

I think it's a perfectly fine font myself. It's good for its purpose and I actually quite like how it looks. I use it on my website, and I think it gives it a bit of a casual hand-written look without being overly flowery or "professional" looking like many other handwriting style fonts are. That said I think it has places where it's appopriate, like personal websites and other more casual things, and places where it's not, like workplaces or professional websites. But that goes for all decorative fonts or generally less standard-looking fonts.

I feel like Comic Sans is just sort of the Nickelback of fonts. It's fun to make fun of and use jokingly, but I don't know if anyone legitimately hates it. Apparently it's a better font than most when it comes to readability, but that's hear-say on my part. I'm not a font specialist.

In a professional setting, I despise it. In a design perspective and anywhere else, I LOVE IT !<o
