“Sometimes font choices keep me awake at night. …But I have come to terms with Comic Sans.”
– Sydney Morning Herald page designer
The Sydney Morning Herald’s use of Comic Sans has font aficionados up in arms. Editor-in-chief Darren Goodsir explains why it was used:
It was felt the font would best depict the comic-book feel we were trying to give to the front; as if to make a mockery of the appalling displays in the witness box from a former politician and a current parliamentarian. I am very pleased with the result.
