What do you call a typeface inspired by Jim Henson? Kernit!

Collins graphic design itsnicethat 2

There’s a fun new font in town and it’s got Jim Henson written all over it.

It’s Nice That has the scoop:

There’s not much we love more than a good pun here at It’s Nice That, so when we stumbled across Collins’ latest typeface, we had to find out more. Developed by the agency’s design director, Jules Tardy and its creative director Thomas Wilder, the typeface is inspired by the renowned puppeteer, cartoonist and filmmaker and mastermind behind The Muppets: Jim Henson. Its name? Kernit.

“Kernit was developed as part of our initial design exploration here at Collins, for The Jim Henson Exhibition at The Museum of Moving Image in New York City,” explains Jules. As huge fans of Henson, Jules and Thomas began by fully immersing themselves in his work; from his early film experiments to The Muppets and his later work with productions like Dark Crystal.

Full of curves, with the counters and eyes of the letters appearing squished, Kernit is full of energy, as if it could spring off the page. “Our goal was to build a voice that is both unique and true to Henson’s work and visual style,” they explain. “Each letter and character is meant to capture the same imagination, fun and whimsy which we came to love in his creations.”
