Fontspotting: Comic Sans Inventor!


This is Vincent Connare. He invented Comic Sans. 
"Comic Sans looks like someone threw up on the keyboard and that's what came out," graphic designer Dave Combs told The Huffington Post.
Combs is one of the many haters of Comic Sans, a font that looks like the writing in an old-fashioned comic book, that was invented by Vincent Connare 20 years ago.
Connare knows what he did. He calls comic sans "the most hated and most loved font in the world."
However, if not for mutual hatred of the font, Dave Combs would never have met his wife! 
Watch the video at the link for the full story, and see parents teaching their kids to spot fonts. 

Whoever knew creating a font could be matchmaking??
