If you haven’t read “I’m Comic Sans, Asshole!

you should probably take a time-out and do so now. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

All done? Hilarious, right? Yes.

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of everyone’s favorite font to hate. 20 years of a love-hate relationship with a font for cryin’ out loud! Designers have no shame in judging others solely on their decision to use Comic Sans in a document that others will see…with their eyes…in public. But, you have to admit, Comic Sans has given us 20 years of amazing AIM conversations, passive-aggressive bathroom notices, and now, Cancer posters.

Comic Sans for Cancer is an exhibit inspired by the 20th Anniversary of Comic Sans that will open in London, August 20th – August 24th to support Cancer Research UK:

WE ARE USING THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF COMIC SANS TO TAKE ON CANCER.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, 200 designers and artists from 38 countries have designed posters representing what Comic Sans means to them. Do they love it or hate it? What would the world be like without Comic Sans?

The results are both diverse and intriguing and challenge how we look at this divisive font. A mixture of international designers, artists and studios, along with emerging and established local talent have contributed.

These include Vincent Connare (Comic Sans creator), his nemesis Ban Comic SansBibliothèque,BuildBunch DesignOli FrapeBelieve InHey StudioPurposeSpinSawdustThe PartnersKiosk– and many many more.

Below are my favorite entries from the online gallery:

An Actually Useful Info-Graphic

Let’s be honest, most of the time info-graphics are pretty useless. People just create them because they look fancy, but a majority of times the information is either not enough, or just plain stupid and could be better explained in words.

This cool beans graphic from Toally Rad actually shows…info!

I love their comparisons for noise and speed – clever indeed.

2014 Goal List

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I realized after my last post, that I never re-created the previous posts I had published before my site got wiped. One of those posts included my 2014 Goal List. I’m not one to reach for a New Year’s resolution, or set myself up for something unrealistic. I’m a very level-headed person and I know what I am capable of, and how to get there. I would, however,…

Happy Monday!

I am currently on hour 7.5 of job number 1 – I am really hoping that the Phillies shy away from extra innings or another 4 hour game tonight!! Luckily today is the only day they are home (and I’m working) until next Tuesday. Working 14,15,16+ hour days gets very exhausting, especially when they’re back-to-back-to-back-to-back.

This Saturday I was lucky enough to spend a beautiful…

2014 Goal: Adobe Illustrator CC

I am currently waiting as Adobe CC updates my PhotoShop and Illustrator. I’ve decided that I am going to take some serious time to learn some new tricks and useful skills in Illustrator. I have used the program before when I was in college, but we did not strictly focus on the program, plus I was an idiot in school and didn’t pay attention enough. Anyway, I always love seeing the amazing (and…
