Debuting in 1982 on an IBM computer was the Worlds most famously boring font called Arial. It was Designed by Monotype and even the designer himself (Robin Nicholas) said it was to be a “bland sans-serif”.
Is it me or does Arial get a bad rap! It became the standard for MS Word and web browsers thanks to Microsoft so typically it’s been overused but Arial was never selectively over used. Arial was just the font that loaded up first and hence why people just used it. Because of that a certain monotony also grew with it and most people today mention Arial as the font not to use.
