Comic Sans for Cancer is an upcoming exhibition of posters inspired by the 20th anniversary of Comic Sans. Curated by Chris Flack, Renee Quigley, and Jenny Theolin, all proceeds will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
The exhibition will be held in London this
July August, with the typeface’s creator Vincent Connare among the contributors.
I submitted this one, based on Interbrand’s work for Cancer Research UK.
People close to me died at a young age because of cancer. As cheesy as it might sound, it helped me deal with the loss by remembering the beauty that came before the pain — the times and the laughs we shared along the way.
I don’t think the pain will ever go. But neither will the beauty.
Comic Sans makes some people feel a different kind of pain, obviously restricted to designers, and obviously with a bit of humour. Sticking up for Vincent, when he created Comic Sans in 1995 it was definitely more fit for purpose than Times New Roman.
