Hi Miguel

wow, really nice pixelfont..

but for my taste the letters are a little bit too bold.
What is the minimum pixelsize of "kuppa"?

regards
Christoph

I like it, it reminds me a bit of cooper black.
Great for titling.

Thanks for your comment guys,

I always love cooper, sauna and all the fatty titling fonts outhere, i wish to include kuppa in the next launch of atomicmedia if it is good enough to be used.

I dont know if the letters are "too" bold, to be hard to read or something?

What do you think about the V, W & y ?

the W is nice, the V and U however look alike,
the y's descender is too wide

It's a nice design, but I think you could make the caps at least 1 pixel taller, and maybe 1 pixel bolder. They look too small and light comparing to the lowercase.
Also, the serifs, specially in lowercase characters, look too much like small "circles", just attached to the stroke endings.

I will try to fix and test your suggestions guys,
but i like to keep the small size. The minimalism justify the function of pixel fonts, i think.

hey look its cooper black in bitmap - was my first reaction.

but what a neat idea really. should get "Kotter" printed on a t-shirt set in this font...right away and sell one to me.

Take a look at the new italics, and let me know what you think about it, here is a new mast for typographica.

new italics!

"cooper" = barrelmaker. (barrel = big wood container)

Kuppa = so close to gentle Cooper black - yet so hard to tell whether it should be ONE pixel bigger overall to convey Cooper's humanity.

But no! Let it live at this size, with this italic.

TS: You mean welcome back Kotter?
welcome back - your dreams were your ticket out.
Welcome back - To the same ole place that you laughed about.

MH: How are you going to do the punctuation? The cooper asterisk is a monster, let alone @ or Euro.

Sauna is fantastic, I have the book. It (book) survives reading in the shower. Kuppa adds the Nintendo crispness. Can they sit in a fat sweaty sauna together? [faints]

> It (book) survives reading in the shower.

Reminds me of something stupid I did when I was a teen. I was reading a riveting Conan or Moorcock or something, and couldn't put it down, but I also needed to take a shower. So I put in a large ziplock bag and read it in the shower. It kinda worked, but the overhead of turning the pages (pretty tricky through the bag) didn't make it worthwhile - plus the book still got slightly damp.

I have read ebooks on my pocket PC this way. Awesome part: You can just push the down button. Lousy part: bag steam turns white pixels into little rainbow dots. And there is only one good font on pocket pc (Verdana narrow).

I believe "a Journal of Typography" in Miguel's example above shows the italic form. The serif ends switch sides to *imply* a slant on the vertical.

If Stephen and Tiffany can't recognize an "upright italic" when they see one, what does that say about that style of design?

Gimme italic.

Miss Tiffany's picture

Hmm. Yummy. I'm with Stephen, I want italic too, maybe with alternate swashy characters?

:-)

Miss Tiffany's picture

Hmph! It says I'm really sick still and need to not look at type right now. =\

Stephen Coles's picture

Haha Hrant.

Gimme real italic.
