E-mail exchange with the BBFC

Because somebody had to ask:




Dear Riz,

Thank you for your email. Yes it is comic sans-serif! I hope this puts your mind at rest!

Best,

Subject:        bbfc in the cinema - font query


Hi,

This is an odd one, so I'll understand it if you can't be bothered to answer.

Here goes. Every time I go to the movies, I see the bbfc age certifcate screen and think to myself the relatively new design is so much nicer than the old version. Good fonts and colours, etc. But then I see the serial number thingy-ma-jig in the top right corner and think "this looks like the comic sans serif font", which is really out of kilter with the rest of the page.

Please could you let me know if the typeface is actually comic sans-serif so I stop second-guessing myself every time!

Kind regards

Riz (a typographic nut!)
