Free Font Friday: Cookie
by Taylor Slattery | March 13, 2020
Cookie is a script display typeface that was designed by Ania Kruk. It replicates the calligraphic strokes of a brush and has a nice hand-lettering feel to it. It has a bit of a Betty Crocker vibe, reminiscent of vintage ads and signage from the ’50s. Due to their hand-made nature, script typefaces can range from fanciful to warm, with Cookie, as the name suggests, leaning more towards the latter. With its strong vintage character and inherent wholesomeness, Cookie would make a great choice for any project in need of some retro flavor.
It’s a very friendly looking typeface and reminds me of something you might see on a postcard from Hawaii or somewhere tropical. Being that it was designed for display use, Cookie is best suited for larger sizes. It’s not the most versatile typeface, but one you’re bound to find a use for. It would look great on a poster, packing, or signage.
It maintains decent legibility at smaller sizes, though I wouldn’t use it for body copy. Using it for pull quotes would be a nice way of adding some personality as long as its character matches that of the speaker. Cookie is available in a single style and can be found here.
