igniting a passion for type design & kerning

COCO sans — type design

coco sans
Coco Sans is a lush single weight sans serif display typeface inspired by a New York City street vendor's hand-painted signs. The original sign was super bubbly and juicy and we refined the characters by slimming them down and rounding off the edges. Coco Sans marks the beginning to a journey based of my obsession for letterforms and the spaces between them.

thanks
Thank you Karen Cheng for introducing me to the world of type design and being a careful guiding hand. I will never look at a letter and what exists between the same way again. Shout out to Ruby and Philbert too! Grateful for your eyes and expertise in critiquing our letterforms.
