Font Designer – Nick Cooke

English designer Nick Cooke created ITC Dartangnon™ in 1998.
The work began with the thought, “It’s a long shot but it might just work as a font.” It started as a doodle with a chunky pencil. “So many script fonts look too stylized so I thought I’d try to produce one that looks more like handwriting.” He scanned the doodles and used Fontographer to draw a set of monoline letters. “Working quickly I soon drew the whole alphabet, and without being too pedantic about the characters joining exactly, I arrived at this script.” ITC Dartangnon is an energetic font which remains legible even in small point sizes. And, Cooke adds, “It is supposed to be used as upper and lowercase only, NEVER just caps.”
