I'm not sure where to look on this specimen for – and, yes, this is it's name – 'Happy Times at the IKOB New Game Plus Edition'. The scrolling, the pink, the competing hierarchy, the million type sizes. It shouldn't work. It really shouldn't. And yet...
This new typeface from Hoefler&Co is subtle. What really works is the copywriting coupled with the design. Simple, effective art direction whilst demonstrating the full range of design. Clever.
There are many tihngs that users want that are not in this specimen: a list of glyphs, a type tester, features, language support. But, there are many specimens that don't deliver on what this one for Scilla does: beautifully typeset typographic illustrations demonstrating the beauty of the letterforms.
