in Font of the Week

Trebuchet was created in 1996 for Microsoft by Vincent Connare, the mastermind behind the widely known Comic Sans. Trebuchet is named after the siege engines that were used to break down city walls during Medieval times. Nowadays, the familiar looking font has made a home for itself as one of the most popular fonts used on webpages.
