Comic Sans is a sans-serif script face designed by Vincent Connare in 1994 for Microsoft. The design was inspired by comic book lettering and was intended to be used within cartoon speech bubbles. It’s a font that everyone loves to hate due to its excessive use by non-designers in inappropriate situations. Today, you are probably more likely to see it used ironically or in brutalist design that is intended to look harsh.
