If you watched SNL two Saturdays ago, you may remember Ryan Gosling’s now viral skit, in which his character is plagued by Avatar’s use of the Papyrus font. And again in Avatar 2?! Breaking the hearts of designers and common folk alike, Papyrus is one of those forsaken fonts, at the bottom of the font food chain with the likes of Comic Sans and Zapfino.
The skit made its way around our office, which led to a trip down school-presentation-memory-lane. Shoutout Jokerman!
The SNL writers really nailed the capital F feels on this one — reading the minds and hearts of our own designers. And, really, anyone with a grasp on basic aesthetic virtue. #saynotopapyrus
