So, this might be WAY graphic design insider specific, but today, these words were uttered at a walkthrough (at work - I work in retail as a graphic designer at home office),
"I'm just saying, this font is kind of masculine – I mean don't you think that Comic Sans is more feminine than Arial?"
WHAT? Who uses COMIC SANS?!?
I just couldn't believe it.
When our VP of Marketing looked at her and said, "You want me to use Comic Sans?", you could hear a pin drop. You could also hear me laugh one "HA!" out loud - I couldn't keep it in! I love that he stood there and put her on blast.
PS - we design with Helvetica Neue. It's a workhorse and it's beautiful. I know some people hate it, but it makes everything look finished without a lot of work (leading, kerning, etc). WE DO NOT DESIGN WITH ARIAL.
