Cool Fonts was started in 1995 by Todd Dever as an outlet for some of the fonts he was creating for his own use in broadcast graphics and animation. As demand grew so did the number of fonts offered.
Cited by the New York Times as one of the new breed of type designers, Cool Fonts has had many high profile clients from Playboy magazine to D.C. Comics and Mad magazine. “Its great to open a major magazine and see your work on the page, but its really just as cool when someone sends you a sample of their business cards or some little project and you see what awesome things people are doing with these fonts,” says designer Dever.
Such fonts as Freak, Smash and KillerAnts are classics. What does the future hold for Cool Fonts? “Like the name says... more Cool Fonts!”
