Behind the typeface: Cooper Black

Wednesday 3 December 2003

This will only cement my reputation as a type geek, but I really enjoyed Behind The Typeface: Cooper Black. It’s a skillful parody of the VH1 series Behind The Music, about the typeface Cooper Black. Not only have they captured the style and breathless tone of the TV series, but they have all of their type facts straight as well. Full type geek disclosure: I laughed when I saw Hobo standing on the train tracks (before the caption came up).

I've never been a typeface geek myself, but that was hysterical! Thanks for sharing it.
