About this font family
Teddy by Minjoo Ham is a script-style display font in three layers, plus a stand-alone “Open” variety.
The family was awarded a “Certificate of Typographic Excellence” from New York’s Type Directors Club (TDC) in 2018. More…
Teddy was the result of an exploration of mid-century German and Dutch bold script lettering for advertising. Minjoo realized there were already quite a few straightforward digitizations in this genre, and decided to take the idea to a more adventurous level. The result: an attractive contemporary typeface drawn from scratch with brand-new, more vigorous detailing — and layerable variations for chromatic (2- and 3-color) use.
Teddy’s Regular can be backed by the Cloud layer, while sparkle can be added by putting the Highlight on top. Its Open version is basically the Regular with the Highlight built in as holes (easier to use on the web than the layered solution). Many letter combinations, including double characters like dd and ll, are automatically replaced by more elegant solutions. (Latin) language coverage is exemplary. The fonts contain a set of Small Caps, and various styles of figures (numbers).
Buyers of the REGULAR weight have the FREE benefit of Teddy’s International Catchwords. Teddy Regular contains a lovely collection of ready-made catchwords in many more languages than is common: English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, and a few Portuguese and Scandinavian exclamations!
Finally, Fust & Friends offer a dingbat-and-symbol companion to Teddy, the playful Teddings icon font by illustrator Bea Davies.
