About FF Dax Font Family
German type designer Hans Reichel created this sans FontFont between 1995 and 2000.
The family has 36 weights, ranging from Light to Black in Condensed, Normal, and Wide (including italics) and is ideally suited for advertising and packaging, book text, editorial and publishing, logo, branding and creative industries, poster and billboards, wayfinding and signage as well as web and screen design.
FF Dax provides advanced typographical support with features such as ligatures, small capitals, alternate characters, case-sensitive forms, fractions, and super- and subscript characters.
It comes with a complete range of figure set options – oldstyle and lining figures, each in tabular and proportional widths.
As well as Latin-based languages, the typeface family also supports the Cyrillic and Greek writing systems.
In 1998, FF Dax received the The Big Crit award.
This FontFont is a member of the FF Dax super family, which also includes FF Dax Compact and FF Daxline.

Based in the trendy district of Kreuzberg in Berlin, Germany, FontFont was established in 1990 when FontShop founder Erik Spiekermann and fellow type designer Neville Brody wanted to build a foundry where type was made for designers, by designers; a place where type designers were given a fair and friendly offer and where true type magic was made. “From the very beginning,” representatives of the foundry say, “we wanted to bend the rules and test typographic boundaries, to build a library with a collection like no other; a range of typefaces that had different styles, different purposes, that was contemporary, experimental, unorthodox, and radical.”
