Exhibition | Comic Sans for Cancer / by Jenny Theolin

Selection

“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. Curated by Chris Flack, Renee Quigley and myself.

Can Comic Sans have a positive effect on society? To celebrate its 20th anniversary, designers and artists from 34 countries (!) have designed posters representing what Comic Sans means to them. Do they love it or hate it? What would the world be like without the font we all love to hate? 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. See the full roster below.

From over 500 submissions, 200 posters will be exhibited at The Proud Archivist in London from August 20th – 24th

All posters will be available to purchase at the exhibition with proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.

Please follow us on twitter, like us on facebook  and our friends over at Cancer Research UK would be over the moon with a donation  too.
