Comic Neue by Craig Rozynski
If you're looking for a fun, light hearted font but simply can't bring yourself to use Comic Sans, then Comic Neue, a make-over of the infamous font, may be just the solution.
Released yesterday by Australian designer Craig Rozynski (opens in new tab), Comic Neue's arrival has already caused quite a stir in the design world, with it leading to Comic Sans trending on Twitter and the original font's designer Vincent Connare, commenting that the design "should be more casual."
Rozynski comments on his design: "Comic Sans wasn’t designed to be the world’s most ubiquitous casual typeface. Comic Neue aspires to be the casual script choice for everyone including the typographically savvy.
"The squashed, wonky, and weird glyphs of Comic Sans have been beaten into shape while maintaining the honesty that made Comic Sans so popular. It's perfect as a display face, for marking up comments, and writing passive aggressive office memos."
Comic Neue is available to download for free (opens in new tab) for a limited time only.
