Comic Sans for Cancer – an exhibition of posters inspired by the 20th anniversary of Comic Sans (the font we all love to hate) with proceeds going to Cancer Research UK. We've had an astonishing 500+ submissions from 36 countries, and will be exhibiting 200 posters at The Proud Archivist from Aug 20th – 24th.
Curated by Chris Flack, Renee Quigley & Jenny Theolin
The results are both diverse and intriguing and challenge how we look at this divisive font. We have a mixture of international designers/studios, along with emerging and established local talent.
These include Vincent Connare (Comic Sans creator), his nemesis Ban Comic Sans, Bibliothèque, Build, Bunch Design, Oli Frape, Believe In, Hey Studio, Purpose, Spin, Sawdust, The Partners, Kiosk – and many many more.
To launch the event we will be asking people to change their logo/fonts to Comic Sans for the day on August 20th.
*This may be the first time we publicly admit to having used Comic Sans. We apologise in advance to the design gods for the design sins we are about to commit. Please have mercy on our souls.
