Cotdien Typeface (Free & Multilingual)
Cotdien Typeface (Vietnamese: Cột điện, English: Power pole) is a typeface created by Manh Nguyen, a Vietnam-based type designer who is in love with hand-drawn classic panels and propaganda banners in Vietnam from the very last century and try to bring the sense of a drawn one into his work. In the other hand, the typeface is also affected by the presence of “power poles” which is called humorously “non-leaves energy-producing trees” growing unnecessarily but bringing a tremendous amount of cables on themselves around street corners, therefore alongside with timeflow, the power poles become more and more iconic and cannot be ignored in several Vietnam poets’ and artist’ works in nearly 100 years til’ now.
Great! That is my feeling, I love the country of Vietnam, and particularly this font, I’ve seen it on old newspapers about Vietnam, its ancient style.
Thanks very much to Manh Nguyen
