Has Comic Sans been saved? Hello Comic Neue.

image

So has a three year project to save Comic Sans from being the most hated, (some would argue love to hate) typeface.

Although the font has been widely ridiculed, Craig Rozynski Australian designer, set himself the task to resurrect the font to redefine its very essence. Has he succeeded? Since it was released on Monday it has had over 100,000 downloads. Check it out! Even download it if you wish. I honestly can’t believe that it’s back with a vengeance. Does it work though?

Has it been a success?

Or will it continue to be the most hated typeface that the majority of designers have nightmares, and even phobias about?

Glowing Trees - ‘That could replace street lights in the not so distant future’ - Design and Architecture

DEZEEN and MINI FRONTIERS: Dutch Designer and Arcitect ‘Daan Roosegaarde is exploring the bio-luminescent qualities of Jellyfiah and Mushrooms. WHY? To create a glow-in-the-dark tree that could replace everyones street lights. 

*Biomimicry: is the method of imitating models and systems found in nature to solve complex design issues. One of the biological phenomena that fascinated Roosegaarde was how animals like jellyfish and fireflies generate their own light.
