Meet the Font

Font searches excite me. I searched for a typeface that was contemporary but glanced back to classic with characteristics of elegance and yet, friendly. Through multiple searches from many type foundry visits I found Kopius at Adobe fonts. I loved its characteristics with

round, open counters conveying a relaxed ambiance.

The italics in this design exhibit autonomy, showcasing letterforms that diverge

from mere slanted adaptations of the upright font characters. The background

shapes depicted in the graphic above derive from two distinct family members,

namely "Kopius Box Headings" and "Kopius Labels." These members house collections

of robust and rounded forms that seamlessly complement the letterforms found

in the other fonts within the family.
