A font inspired by hamsters
Hamster is a capital display typeface, if you select the lowercase letters they invert the colors for additional variation.
Joe Stitzlein’s Hamster is a colorful playground for designers that’s sure to bring you childhood memories.
It was not only the transparent, partly colored plastic tubes and terrariums that made an impression on the designer, but also the animals. Their two-tone fur inspired Joe to design his typeface as a Color Font. The rounded ends and bold font weights are reminiscent of the rodents’ distinctive chubby cheeks. The characteristics of cuddly and chubby therefore apply equally to both animals and font. The lighter weights appear less playful and would make for a perfect logotype for young fashion brands, for example.
I have to give credit where credit is due. This font is just plain fun. Awesome job Fontwerks.
