Coco Sans

a juicy and youthful display type inspired by a vendor's hand-painted sign ↧

We're all nuts for coconuts!
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.
