The Onion Takes Down Long Reviled Comic Sans

New Study Explains Why Comic Sans Font So Hilarious (Season 1: Ep 8 on IFC)

Comic Sans
, one of the most vomitous, disgusting typefaces ever foisted upon humanity, gets a tongue-in-cheek comeuppance by "America's Most Trusted News Source" - The Onion.

While this is really humorous, what is significant about the clip is that it exemplifies the raised consciousness the average person now has about typefaces. And that alone is noteworthy.

Genetic Portraits Are Unsettling, Beautiful

The work of artist Ulric Collette seeks to examine the connections between family members in a unique, and sometimes unsettling way.

From My Modern Met:

Quebec, Canada-based graphic designer and photographer Ulric Collette has created a shockingly cool project where he's exploring the genetic similarities between different members of the same family. By splitting their faces in half and then melding them together, he creates interesting new people that are sometimes quite normal looking and other times far from it. He calls this series Genetic Portraits.

Check out more of his great work here.
