I am posting to let everyone know that we are working with filmmaker Scott Hutcheson to produce a documentary film about the world's most controversial font, Comic Sans. The font's designer Vincent Connare has said, "If you love it, you don't know much about typography. If you hate it, you don't know much about typography, either, and you should get another hobby." We agree with the first part of that statement. For nearly ten years now, our hobby has been hating on Comic Sans with the ban comic sans campaign.
In the vein of the Helvetica film, Hutcheson will explore the world's love/hate relationship with Comic Sans by interviewing top designers including Shepard Fairey, designer of the iconic Obama HOPE image.
Watch the trailer and please consider backing the making of the film on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/662700668/comic-sans-the-documentary-round-2
