About this font family
“The casual handwriting font to end all other casual handwriting fonts.” Not faint praise, but how Jens Kutilek feels about the outcome of his, on and off, eight-year mission to create the ultimate suite of handwriting fonts. More…
With two text-specific designs and 11 display typefaces, FF Uberhand™ is one of the largest and most versatile handwriting designs available. The design guarantees legibility at small sizes and design integrity at the largest of sizes. Fitted character spacing, character edge definition and design subtleties were introduced into the weights to create an ideal display design in FF Uberhand, while the FF Uberhand Text Regular and Text Bold designs were optimized for long-form text setting. Three variants of each letter – and up to four for the most common lowercase characters – were also drawn to create a spontaneous hand-lettered appearance. Whether in print or on screen, FF Uberhand brings a lively spontaneity to any project.
An added benefit is that the FF Uberhand design pairs well with a wide range of typestyles. Geometric sans serif typefaces, like Century Gothic™ and Neue Kabel®, provide a dynamic contrast, Glyphic designs like ITC Élan™ and ITC Stone® Humanist or Gill Sans® Nova, create a subtle typographic rhythm. And pairing FF Uberhand with almost any serif typeface will produce a vibrant counterpoint.
