Yep, our 5-year-old told his teacher not to use Comic Sans
Disclaimer: This is an excerpt from an actual email from Cooper’s teacher that came to my inbox yesterday. I almost fell over when I read it. As designers, we’re trying to raise design-minded kids and Cooper has always shown an affinity for typography from a very young age… but no one will believe us when we say we aren’t forcing this on him. He IS right about Comic Sans, though. Maybe he’ll start a movement to improve typography in preschool classrooms across America!
Ya can’t make this stuff up, folks.
Watch Cooper (at age 3!) try to convince the internet that his dad loves Zapfino.
