HOMAGE TO PAPYRUS

The “other font” that designers love to hate. ⁣

Papyrus was designed by Chris Costello in 1982...he was just 23 years old. The typeface was hand drawn over the course of 6 months. Kudos to Chris for leaving his mark on the world by age 23!⁣

If we didn’t have Papyrus, designers would immediately have 50% less jokes. Do the math...no Comic Sans and no Papyrus...designers cease being funny.⁣

Papyrus was infamously used on the Avatar movie poster in 2009. (Yes, it was modified.)⁣

Papyrus was even more infamously teased in the Saturday Night Live sketch with Ryan Gosling in 2017. You should watch this. YouTube search... Ryan Gosling Papyrus
