Here we go again, readability, fonts and a respite for Comic Sans? No!

I’ve just read about a study that showed that hard to read typefaces facilitate learning. Does that mean you should write your strategic plan in a curly typeface? No, it merely give credence to my assertion that a serif typeface aids in readability. The study was published in the Journal of Cognition. A couple more rules of thumb: Never use a script font in all caps, no lengthy text in all caps. No using a typeface just because you really, really like it. Behave, be good, and good night.
