Feline font family comes with its own set of dingcats

Are you a cat person or a dog person? If you said dog person, just pretend you're a cat person for a bit, all right? We'll try and find something dog-related for you soon.

And if you're a cat person, do we have a treat for you! Kitten (opens in new tab) is a brush typeface family designed by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, with illustrations by Isabella Ahmadzadeh, and it's inspired by everyone's favourite domestic furry psychopaths.

Kitten comes in all the styles and weights you need

Its playful letterforms come in three styles - regular, swashy and slant - with multiple weights to add to the variety, and best of all it also features an additional set of adorable feline dingbats - or dingcats, if you prefer. And yes, we very much prefer.

Kitten is suitable for all manner of uses; its designer suggests that its curvy and bold shapes in the regular weight are purrfect for logo design and display use, while its single stroke monoline weight and condensed slant variant are suitable for longer text blocks.

It's completely free to use in personal, non-commercial projects, while if you'd like to use Kitten commercially you can buy it from Zetafonts (opens in new tab) with various licence options available.

Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
