Vincent Connare, Inventor Of 'The Most Hated Font,' Defends Himself

A typographic engineer, Connare was working at Microsoft in 1993, when he was asked for his input on a new program's fonts. "When I loaded the CD a little dog came up. He talked in a speech balloon like you would get in a newspaper cartoon strip, but it was in the system font Times New Roman," Connarre says. "I thought, 'That's silly. Dogs don't talk like that.' So I said it would look better if it looked like a comic book."
