Happy font family


Designed by  Tony Stan in 1972;
Patrick Griffin in 1972;
Happy is what happy does, as they say. Well, this font is very happy, and does a lot to prove it. Its letters jump for joy, bounce with excitement, roll with pleasure, greet you with a party mood, and leave you with a smile. Happy is the digital version of one the most whimsical takes on typewriters ever made, an early 1970s Tony Stan film type called Ap-Ap (as in "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands, Ap-Ap", but we may be imagining things). Some of the original characters were replaced with more fitting ones, but the original ones are still accessible as alternates within the font. We also made italics and bolds to make you Happy-er. This font is the equivalent of someone’s attempt to draw the letters of a typewriter with a round ball pen, and with complete disregard to standard type rules such as baseline, stroke width, serif uniformity, etc. The result is a unique feel-good font that can't help but make its readers smile. Happy is an excellent choice for children’s books, retro design, greeting cards and invitations, posters, party flyers, short comic strips, or that silly garage sale sheet you're going to tape on every pole in the neighborhood. So, if you're Happy and you know it, clap your hands... and try this font!

Kerning

Tag: kern

Function: Adjusts amount of space between glyphs, generally to provide optically consistent spacing between glyphs. Although a well-designed typeface has consistent inter-glyph spacing overall, some glyph combinations require adjustment for improved legibility. Besides standard adjustment in the horizontal direction, this feature can supply size-dependent kerning data via device tables, "cross-stream" kerning in the Y text direction, and adjustment of glyph placement independent of the advance adjustment. Note that this feature may apply to runs of more than two glyphs, and would not be used in monospaced fonts. Also note that this feature does not apply to text set vertically. The o is shifted closer to the T in the combination "To."
