Described as a “serious typeface,” FF Cocon is unique in its rounded off ends. It works very well as a display typeface, but at small sizes, it is still very readable. Evert Bloemsma designed FF Cocon to be a typeface that did not have any characteristics of a handwritten font at all. Which was very difficult because even other neutral sans serif typefaces still has a hint of handwritten relics where a round form is attached to a straight line.
Despite this challenge, Bloemsma created a very successful typeface that is used in numerous design applications around the world. FF Cocon emerged as a typeface with rounded yet asymmetrical letterforms with brushstroke-like details. This “serious” font is great for any project looking for a unique look and feel.
