Skylab has given birth to its first bouncing baby font. Its name is ‘Skooper’ and it weighs in at 12pt (and more). It was originally conceived to be the face of a project we’re currently working on, a project that required something with a warm, friendly vibe.
We’ve released the font under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 UK & Wales license.
Taking a lead from the curvy perennial classic ‘Cooper’ we decided to hand-render our version in a loose pencil outline, we finished the cut with a diagonal pencil scribble to give it the informal and sketchy vibe we were after.
The font was created by Skylab-Tom who says “I’d been interested in creating a font for a while so this project provided the ideal opportunity to give it a go. So, armed with an old copy of Fontlab Studio, a scanner and a sharp pencil I set to work…”
Alternatively you can download the font from dafont.com
For those interested in creating their own hand drawn fonts, here are the steps he took:
