Foundry: Canada Type
In 1972, VGC released two typefaces by designer friends Dick Jensen and Harry Villhardt. Jensen's was called Serpentine, and Villhardt's was called Venture. Serpentine went on to become the James Bond font, the Pepsi and every other soda pop font, the everything font, all the way through the glories of digital lala-land where it was hacked, imitated and overused by hundreds of designers. But the only advantage it really had over Venture was being a 4-style family, including the bold italic that made it all the rage, as opposed to Venture's lone upright style. Chopper is Canada Type's revival of Venture. This time around it comes with a roman and an italic to make it a much more attractive and refreshing alternative to Serpentine. Chopper boasts extended language support, and contains a ton of alternate characters sprinkled throughout the character map.
