courier sans was originally designed in 1994 during the first year of my graphic design degree in order to circumvent the college's tyrannical "courier only" rule of their pseudo-basel ‘basic typography’ exercises. by taking the generic macintosh system font and cutting off all the serifs, a pleasantly anonymous and functional, yet somehow stylish sans serif was created. i received a third for the exercise, but was able to refute accusations of rule-breaking with the answer: "ah, but you see: it's courier SANS!"
