Moppet was inspired by Venetian and French old style typefaces. “Moppet,” a 17th century word for “small endearing sweet child” felt like the perfect name for something that took from the old, but subtly mixed with flare. With low contrast stroke line, thick to thin serifs rounded edges, crossbars on an upward angle, and a high x-height, makes this typeface a suitable fit for long copies of text–preferably at small sizes and easy on the eyes.

Moppet was created in the mindset for printed type. With lots of character, the letter set is very unique. A favorite, “g” reflects upon old characteristics from a Venetian cursive “g” but created into a serif. Something that is no longer seen in modern-day typefaces but was needed for this typeface. Interesting characteristics can also be found in “e” “t” and a personal favorite, “f”
