Few fonts reach cult status. Despite its ubiquity-and perhaps because of its lack of subtlety-for a hundred years Cooper continues to draw the faithful. It's even come to define an entire typographic genre and recently starred in its own documentary.

Cooper Nouveau is Dave West's imaginative contribution to the Cooper oeuvre. Drawn in 1966, Nouveau refreshes Oswald Cooper's original italic with an energetic pitch, simplified contours, and a plump friendly figure. Uniform strokes and generous curves push the font's playful personality and springy silhouette even further. A selection of swashed characters and ligatures offers options for lively logos and strong captions.

While Cooper Nouveau looks laid-back and easy-going, it's more than capable of pulling it's own typographic weight. Put it to work where relaxed needs to project confident. Set Nouveau large for eye-magnet posters, packaging, and advertisements. Maximize its youthful energy for kids' themes, craft action, and apparel bounce. Or set it alongside a master like Benguiat Buffalo or Chalet to show how Cooper Nouveau can communicate on paper and screens with an inherent ability to speak the language of style in many tongues.

But like any cult icon: beware! Cooper has a way of setting the needle, and Nouveau just may become your go-to design fix.


ALTERNATES: Cooper Nouveau contains several alternate characters, which add flair to your designs and can help solve spacing issuesLIGATURES: Many letter combinations in Cooper Nouveau form a ligature to solve spacing issues and produce more pleasing designs.
