It’s the most hated font on the planet.
Yes, the ubiquitous Comic Sans. The font that makes designers cringe, but that’s plastered on everything from school newsletters to blogs because it screams casual and friendly.
Well, there are PLENTY of “casual and friendly” fonts out there besides Comic Sans. So thought I’d start an every-so-often series where I take a much loathed or overly used font and offer some suggestions that won’t make readers silently judge your font choice.
The suggestions include five free fonts and five paid ones. And the point isn’t to give you Comic Sans lookalikes, but rather to give you the same vibe… without the cringing.
Note: This post contains some affiliate links to the paid fonts.
