FF Mark W1G fonts features a pan-European character-set for international content. The character-set supports almost all the popular languages and writing systems in western, eastern, and central Europe based on the Latin alphabet, in addition to several based on the Cyrillic and Greek alphabets.
- The family has special umlaut characters for setting capital words or headlines with tight linespacing
- Erik Spiekermann provided creative input for the design.
- Each weight has over 1,000 characters
Released to MyFonts in 2013, FF Mark draws on historical examples from German geometric type designs of the early twentieth century.
Capital letters are wide with open counters and generous apertures, to provide high levels of legibility in a sans serif design. Italic characters are harmonized to their Roman counterparts and retain simple geometric character shapes to ensure legibility at small sizes.
