Comic Sans Gets ‘Neue’ Look

comic neue

Three years ago, digital designer Craig Rozynski set out to save Comic Sans, the blacksheep of the font family. The self-described “font philanthropist” has emerged from his hobby project with Comic Neue, a makeover of the awkward glyphs of the font that everyone loves to his hate. Free to download, Comic Neue aspires to be “the casual script choice for everyone including the typographically savvy.” It’s the perfect choice for lemonade stand signage or passive-aggressive office memos. “Best of all, Vincent Connare, the creator of the original Comic Sans, told me it ‘should be more casual,’” says Rozynski. “The criticism has come full circle.”
