Why do people hate Comic Sans?

Comic Sans was originally developed by typographer Vincent Connare in 1994 to pair with a cartoon dog that helped folks navigate the Microsoft Windows interface. The font that was dubbed “playful” and “friendly” by its creator has since become a pariah in the typography community and a laughing stock on the internet at large. The reason could have to do with the font being used out of context, so to speak. Here’s how Jo Mackiwicz, a professor of rhetoric of and professional communication who’s researched how people perceive fonts, explained it to LiveScience:

“People, especially typographers, get upset when it's used improperly. For example, if someone sends an email or writes a document using it, it results in a mismatch — an informal, childlike, 'funny' typeface for a potentially serious topic. I think a lot of the reasons people hate it is that it's seen so often, and in places where it should not be used. The fact that it was being used outside of its rather limited purpose — that became obnoxious to people who knew better.”

What font should you use on your resume?

Resume Fonts

The most common and accepted font for business and professional use is Times New Roman.

  • A popular online resume writing service recommends serif fonts (e.g. Times New Roman) for a traditional look, and sans serif fonts (e.g. Arial, Helvetica) for a more contemporary look. Which you choose depends on your personal preference and the job you're applying for.
  • Use Century Old Style if you're applying to a "business" job--banks, brokerages, like that. Century Old Style is traditionally the face used for bank advertising.

What do you call non-capital letters?

The correct term is "minuscule," but people will look at you REAL strange if you use it.

You'll like this: how "lower case" letters got their name was from hand-set typography. In hand-set work, you used blocks with letters molded into the end of them. The capital letters went into one type case, the minuscules went into another. To make it easy to work with, you put the two cases one above the other. The one with the capital letters was the upper case, and the one with the minuscules was the lower case.

A lower-case letter, a "small letter" or a non-capital letter.

What is block printing?

== == "Block Printing" or "Woodblock Printing" is a method used to print text, images or patterns on textiles and later paper. This method was widely used throughout East Asia and originating in China in antiquity. How it worked: Patterns and letters were carved into wooden blocks, so that the letter or pattern is chiseled and protrudes so to speak from the wooden block.

These blocks are then coated with Ink, and brought pressed firmly and evenly onto the paper or cloth. The content would print backwards (mirror-image).
