Font Design

Lulu is a display typeface with roman and italic styles, and offering contextual ligatures.

Bold & friendly, I was inspired by fonts like Cooper Black and Windsor. For Lulu, I wanted to create a contemporary approach of an old style display typeface.

A lot of test prints later...

and some happy accidents...

After studying Cooper Black, I noticed that the font did not provide Vietnamese language support. Coming from a Chinese-Vietnamese background, I wanted incorporate Vietnamese diacritics to Lulu.
