Comic Sans revival

Comic Sans started out as a friendly little font to be used in speech bubbles on MS Word... an alternative to the more serious Times New Roman. But soon Comic Sans Criminals began to take over, printing serious information in this playful font (see the story here).

We recently spotted Comic Spurs - an attempt to 'rehabilitate the world’s most reviled font'. Should the irony be lost on you, we're not advocating its use, just loving the reminder that context is everything, and that a font can make or break the tone of your communication (and therefore connection) with your customer.
