Hello Kitty font

The Hello Kitty font that is most similar to the one used in the official logo is a typeface by the name of Janda Happy Day font. It was created by the font designer Kimberly Geswein and first released in 2012. It has a lovely handwritten appearance that you use to create a wide variety of custom graphics for clothing, stationery, and in web design projects.

This script font includes all the same lovely swirls, curls, flourishes and embellishments that you find in the original cat character by Yuko Shimizu. It comes in a True Type Font (TTF) format which means that it is fully compatible with all PC and Mac computers / laptops and devices. This typeface also includes a full suite of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and glyphs. You can use it to create a variety of letting and images in Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop, and other image processing software.

There are in fact several other similar fonts that you can try out that look alot like the logo for the Hello Kitty brand. A common aspect of these fonts is that they all feature a bold and rounded appearance, that is geometric in style yet still highly legible.  These include:

  • Curly Luly font
  • Veronica Script font
  • Boldins font
  • Countryhouse font
  • Odin Rounded Bold font

To completement this lettering font, we’re also offering the Helly Kitty Woodcutter font for free download as well. This is in fact a dingbat font which includes more than 20 different HK related images, just like the ones used in the original Hello Kitty logo. Designed and created by the Woodcutter Manero foundry, it installs just like a regular font, but instead of outputting lettering, this font produces Hello Kitty images and symbols (or dingbats as they’re also sometimes known). This is one of my favorite dingbat fonts and is a file that you’re definitely going to want to download and use in your next creative project.

All of these fonts are included and are free to download. Click on the button below to grab your free copy of these elegant and playful fonts.

About Hello Kitty typeface

Hello Kitty is a popular Japanese cartoon character. It was originally created by the company Sanrio in 1974 to sell sandals, when they noticed that customers were willing to pay more for goods and toys with cute character designs on them. From such humble beginnings, this cat with a red bow quickly captured the hearts of consumers. Originally aimed at children and preteens, Sanrio started marketing Hello Kitty goods to adults in the 1990s, and expanded her presence to a wider range of goods – from t-shirts and clothing, right through to a theme park and TV cartoon series. Hello Kitty goods were introduced to the United States in 1976, and today this simple design has become incredibly popular logotype that now represents a global marketing franchise worth an estimated $84.5 billion.
