Designer Redesigns Comic Sans, Tries To Make It ‘Beautiful’

Can Comic Sans, the world's most reviled typeface, be made beautiful?

Designer Bård Edlund explains how he takes on the typeface, and sets out on a quest to “make beauty out of garbage”.

Edlund has created a total of four variations—starting with the first experiment by chopping off offensive parts of the letter forms, and giving them a metallic, futuristic makeover.

He then went on to create a 3-D geometric sculptural version, and another that folds the letters in half to create new shapes.

For his final experiment, he rotated copies of each letter around an anchor point of 40 degrees, eight times each, to create a circular symbol.

What do you think of these new versions of Comic Sans?
