What is Comic Sans font?
Comic Sans font was designed to purely model the typography in historical comic books. It was designed for ‘Bob’, a virtual assistant that would help kids and beginner users launch programs and do simple tasks.
Those who have problems in reading become comfortable for its irregular composition and the disparity in letter height in this typography.
Initially this sans serif typeface was simply designed for comic books only. However, officials and young professionals have been using it creating office flyers, documents and logos etc. since its release.
A study concluded, school students spent more time digesting the information when printed in the irregular set of fonts and were subsequently far more likely to remember it in the future. The study also tested how the readability of fonts affected school childrens’ retention of information.
This typography is also spacious and gives readers the chance to distinguish the letters. That’s why designers consider Comic Sans the best of the bunch for mainstream typefaces.
