Introduction

Shout out to all the font enthusiasts, it's time to celebrate Comic Sans Day on July 5! Created in 1994 by Vincent Connare, Comic Sans was initially meant for a comic book speech bubble in a Microsoft software, and oh boy, has it come a long way since! Often dubbed as the most polarizing font in existence, you either love it or you hate it, but there’s no denying that its wonky, irregular shapes bring a touch of fun to even the most formal documents. So let's have a whole day to honour this font that keeps the design world on its toes! Twist up your emails, lighten up your documentation, and unleash your playful side on this day of typographic liberation. Be ready to break the rules, tap into your inner child and remember, only on Comic Sans Day is it okay to forget about Times New Roman!
