Adobe – Nooooooooooooooo!

Just got this in my email from Adobe…

Dear Adobe, you are a company that is supposed to understand design. You make wonderful software that lots of designers use. And then you go and do this. A plain text email would have been fine. A nicely formatted HTML email would have been OK too. But really. Seriously.

Using Comic Sans in an account termination warning email.

It can’t ever be right, can it?

  1. I employ a zero tolerance policy when it comes to any CV’s written in Comic Sans, for some reason i associate it firmly with posters created by teachers for after school activites

  2. “i associate it firmly with posters created by teachers for after school activities”

    – Haha. Spot on, Giles.

  3. Hello yes, my name is Emma and I am a teacher. I have a confession to make… I use comic sans… a lot. There you go, I feel better now (sigh).

  4. Sigh. I love Comic Sans. It’s the best hand-printed font I’ve found. It’s sans serif and clean. It’s my favorite screen font.

    Still, I would not use it for my resume or a business letter. I do, however, use it for informal letters, faxes to our vet (who’s a nut :) and my web site. Anyone who doesn’t want to read me because of my font choice.. I don’t need as a reader.

    I’ve never understood the Cult of Dissing Comic Sans. As our vet said when he first saw it: “That’s a happy font!”

  5. I gotta admit that this is totally uncool! Comic Sans… I am almost left speechless here. Can you forward me that message?
