Background

Cooter is an amalgam of two of my other fonts, incorporating the loose linework of Lump and some of the roundness of Fatty. It’s a cheeky homage to what I like to call “suburban graffiti”, the kind of quick hand lettering that you might find plastered across sale signage at the hipster boutique of your local megamall.

The name is in homage to the Dukes of Hazzard mechanic, with a double nod to the southern slang for a burrowing turtle and the comedic poise of Tina Fey.
