My thoughts on Sniglet

Have a fun break for your headings and maybe some pull quotes. Sniglet could be the friendly, rounded display typeface you’re looking for. Don’t get distracted by its wobbly characters, it shows some practical design work. It comes with a full character set, so you can type in Icelandic, German or French.

It’s hilarious how playful Sniglet is. Look at the at sign – in bold it turns into text, otherwise it would be too dark.

The bold weight is very attention grabbing, the regular is very approachable. And I just love this blobby bold weight! The regular style might appear a bit cheap, but maybe that’s exactly that fits your project?

Recommended Font Pairing

Sniglet is so different, that you could pair it with anything that’s simpler. But if you want to keep that soft feeling, use rounded Onest. But also rounded, geometric Mont Blanc would work.
