Amateur Typeface Game Art
This New Meme Has Gamers Recreating Box Art with Comic Sans and Clip Art

By: Andrew Sztein (Star) Apr 24, 13

Here’s a fun meme that turns to horror of the comic sans font and freely available clip art into compelling recreations of iconic video game box art.

It’s pretty much common Internet opinion at this point that the comic sans font is the worst font in existence that makes anything it touches seem amateurish. When you mix comic sans with clip art that looks just as amateurish as the font with video game box art, you end up with something that’s as beautifully hilarious as it is awful to look at. A Tumblr blog has taken it upon itself to collect all of the best mashups of box art with the terrible visual elements. The Tumblr blog even allows for album covers and movie posters to be redone in comic sans.

The ironic part is that despite how amateurish the box art designs are, a lot of work went into creating each one.
