The new UWE Snapchat filter uses Comic Sans as its font

This is not OK

Quite possibly the worst way to start a day is realising your uni’s snapchat filters font is Comic Sans. Who allowed this to happen? Why are good things so often misrepresented?

We are UWE, we are Red Stripe, we are NOT Comic Sans.


Sorry snapchat are we eight years old again? Am I sitting in my ICT class, I cant remember.

But what I do remember is that comic sans is the Megan McKenna of fonts: in your face, over the top and very generic. It is a well-known fact that Comic Sans is indeed the worst font in existence.

In many ways this sadly does represent UWE, but we cannot give up until our uni is given a good-looking snapchat filter – until then? Don’t even bother.
