Font Allergies

By: lucia martinez

Technically these are typeface allergies.  Why?  Because fonts and typefaces are not the same thing.  Typeface refers to the design of the character, whereas font indicates the particular combination of typeface, size, and effect.  So Times New Roman is a typeface, but 12 pt. Times New Roman is a font.

But basically they’re used interchangeably nowadays.

The point is, whether you call it a typeface or a font, Comic Sans is nauseating.
