Cooper Nouveau is Dave West's imaginative contribution to the Cooper oeuvre. Attracted 1966, Nouveau refreshes Oswald Cooper's original italic with an energetic pitch, simplified contours, and a plump friendly figure. Consistent strokes and generous curves push the font style's lively personality and springy shape even further. A choice of swashed characters and ligatures provides alternatives for vibrant logos and strong captions.

While Cooper Nouveau looks laid-back and easy-going, it's more than efficient in pulling it's own typographic weight. Put it to work where unwinded needs to predict confident. Set Nouveau big for eye-magnet posters, product packaging, and ads. Maximize its youthful energy for kids' themes, craft action, and clothing bounce. Or set it together with a master like Benguiat Buffalo or Chalet to demonstrate how Cooper Nouveau can communicate on paper and screens with an inherent ability to speak the language of design in lots of tongues.

But like any cult icon: be careful! Cooper has a method of setting the needle, and Nouveau just might become your go-to design repair.
