So, where does this font prejudice originate among designers? It could be that the hatred of these fonts grew from overuse with the whole familiarity breeds contempt mumbo jumbo. Maybe it's determined on a case-by-case basis. Unfortunately, there is no science or mathematical equation to determine a terrible font; if there were, every one of these would be extinct.

In a list of what could have easily been 100, I've narrowed it down to 5 fonts that are complete garbage, use at your own risk.

Comic Sans

If you aren't writing a story about a unicorn, then don't use it.
