"The recent discovery of an elusive Higgs boson-like subatomic particle wasn’t just a watershed in the annals of science, it was a landmark moment for typography. Only not in a good way. CERN physicists set off a supernova of Twitter rage when they chose to present their findings—findings that could be key to uncovering the very secrets of the universe—in Comic Sans. Many type designers, myself included, expressed deep disappointment, and armchair critics railed against the scientists for making such an important announcement in one of the most hated fonts in the world (and perhaps the entire universe). It was the typographic equivalent of showing up to a board of directors meeting in flip-flops."
