This is a listing of all glyphs contained in the
OpenType variants that may only be accessible via OpenType-aware
Each basic character (“A”) is followed by Unicode variants of the same
character (Á, Ä…), then OpenType variants (small caps, alternates,
ligatures…). This way you can see all the variations on a single
character in one place.

locations), and products that will be sold.
Adding users later:
Desktop licenses are cumulative. If you require a Desktop license that covers additional users, simply
place a new order for the same Desktop package, for the number of additional users.
Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web
design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.
Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the
@font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the
For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

three would be available for a given webfont. Click here to
You can use this type of license to embed fonts into digital ads, such as ads built using HTML5.
We'll supply a kit containing webfonts that can be used within digital ads, such as banner ads. This kit
may be shared with third parties who are working on your behalf to produce the ad creatives, however you
are wholly responsible for it.
HTML5 ads use webfonts, so why purchase a Digital Ads license rather than a Webfont license?
There are a few reasons, such as the Digital Ads EULA having terms that enable usage in digital ads and on
Digital advertisements also have different usage patterns compared to websites. Most websites generally
have consistent pageviews month-to-month whereas advertising impressions can vary wildly month-to-month.
Prices reflect this, making it much less expensive to use a Digital Ad license.
If you know the number of impressions the campaign requires, that amount can be ordered before the
campaign begins. For campaigns where number impressions is unknown until the end of the campaign, you can
true up at the end of each calendar month.
You can use an Electronic Doc license to embed the font in an electronic publication such as an eBook,
eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDF.
An Electronic Doc license is based on the number of publications in which the font is used. Each issue
counts as a separate publication. Regional or format variations don't count as separate publications.
Updated versions of publications that are free to previous customers do not need a new license; otherwise,
each new version that is released counts as a separate publication.
For font usage in graphic images shown as the ePub cover, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow
The x factor How do you make a font like FS Albert unique, distinctive? “When designing a font I try to question every letter,” says Jason Smith, “but all you need is a few that have an x factor. With FS Albert, they’re the lowercase ‘a’ and ‘g’ and the uppercase ‘I’ and ‘J’. “I remember a friend saying, ‘Why on earth have you designed the ‘a’ like that? Isn’t it too friendly for this kind of font?’ And, in a way, that’s what I wanted – honesty and warmth, because a lot of big brands at the time really needed to show a more human side.”
Range of weights and styles FS Albert is a charismatic type: a warm, friendly sans serif face with a big personality. Open, strong and amenable, and available in a wide range of weights and styles, FS Albert suits almost every task you put it to. Fontsmith has crafted five finely-tuned upright Roman weights and four italic weights, as well as a special Narrow version to provide the best coverage and give headlines and text an easy-going character.
The chunky kid “FS Albert was inspired by – and named after – my son, who was a bit of a chunky kid,” says Jason Smith. “I designed an extra bold weight because I always felt that the really big font heavy weights had the most personality. “I recently told Albert this story. He laughed, and forgave me for thinking he was a fat baby. He liked the big personality bit, though.”
1000s of glyphs Not content with a character set that covered Europe and the whole of the Western world, the studio decided to go further afield. There are now FS Albert character sets that cover western and eastern European languages, including those of Russia, as well as Cyrillic, Arabic and Greek scripts. In fact, the font now covers more than 100 languages, making it ideal for bringing a consistent typographic style to the communications of global brands.
