AFTER I MADE PELAGIC OCTOPUS, I THOUGHT THAT I’D HAD ENOUGH OF KERNING AND I’D NEVER DO IT AGAIN. WELL,…
THIS IS BASED ON MY HANDWRITING. NOT MY REGULAR HANDWRITING — THAT DOESN’T ALLOW FOR LOWER-CASE LETTERS; SO WHENEVER I NEED TO WRITE SOMETHING WITH LOWER-CASE LETTERS (SUCH AS IN EXAMS.), I USE THIS STYLE.
I KNOW THAT IN PLACES IT LOOKS A BIT BROKEN. BUT AT THE SMALL SIZES OF BULK TEXT, IT SHOULDN’T BE TOO NOTICEABLE; IT’S NOT REALLY DESIGNED AS A DISPLAY FONT.
AND I ALSO KNOW THAT SOME SERIFS AND STROKES AREN’T EXACTLY COMMONPLACE (SEE THE UPPER SERIFS ON THE LETTER: “u”). IT’S JUST HOW MY HANDWRITING TURNED OUT.

“WHAKAITI” IS A MĀORI WORD MEANING “TO MAKE SMALL”. IT’S ROUGHLY PRONOUNCED: “ɸɑkɑiti”.
Fett commands attention with its lavish uppercase letters. I had focused on creating an geometrical inverted slab serif incorporating features of Glyphic serifs. The distinguishing feature of Gylphic typefaces are the triangular shaped serif design, or a flaring of the character strokes where they terminate. Although Fett is not classified under either of those groups, I don’t think I wish it could be either- it shouldn’t be. Fett is meant to be very playful and tasteful. I named this font after its thick, fat stroke weight. Fett translates to “fat” in 3 different languages- German, Swedish, and Norwegian.
THIS FONT IS KERNED.
