Winnie the Hoop is the debut release of Teo Tuominen, a Finnish type and graphic designer. The typeface is inspired by a certain well-known teddy bear. Winnie the Hoop is above all happy and meant to be used in happy publications as well. Using this font to communicate a sad or grave message is not recommended.
Winnie the Hoop is a combination of chubby sans-serif capitals and semi-slab lowercase. This feature makes text set in capitals easy to read and ads some useful contrast between capitals and the slightly quirky lowercase letters.
Winnie the Hoop is best suited for large sizes, headlines, posters, and advertisements (as long as they’re happy!).
