Whippin Piccadilly handmade font

by It's me simon in Fonts / Script


Whippin Piccadilly my latest handmade font with 4 contextual alternatives for each letter.

If you turn on contextual alternatives (OpenType) you will notice letter combinations will be replaced with alternative glyphs. Some are joined up, some are just different.

A bit odd

This makes Whippin Piccadilly look much more random. Some letters are rotated one way, some the other. Some are fatter, some are thinner. It looks like a real oddball—I love that.

The real benefit is that you won't get the same letter twice in a word.

You need to enable contextual alternatives in your application. You can also access any of the letters in photoshop by using the glyphs panel.

A charming little beast

The result of all the different characters is that Whippin Piccadilly has a happy go lucky personality. It looks fun and playful.

If this font were a celebrity it would be more Zach Galifianakis than Zac Efron.

The alternatives give it a quirky and sometimes mismatched appearance, but that’s part of the charm.

It’s ideal for book covers, posters, and packaging.

Whippin Piccadilly font includes;

  • One weight regular
  • Standard Ligatures
  • Upper and lowercase
  • Numbers
  • Punctuation & Symbols
  • Western European characters
  • Central European characters
  • South Eastern European characters
  • OTF & TTF included

In total, it includes over 500 glyphs.

If you need any help or have questions just ask.
