Slippery chicken hot pot young

FF Amman was designed in both Latin and Arabic and is one of the very few bi-script families where both the Arabic and the Latin characters were concurrently drawn from scratch by the same designer. It’s also the first typeface of its kind to contain “true Arabic italics,” instead of the much more common oblique versions often paired with the Arabic script. The unconventional family includes...

Please no bomb into the ash here

FF Cocon’s designer, Evert Bloemsma (1958–2005) described it as a “serious typeface.” Despite first impressions, the description holds up well. Since its 2001 release, FF Cocon has been used in an astoundingly wide variety of design applications. At large sizes, FF Cocon works as a display face, with beautiful detailing. And at small sizes, it remains surprisingly readable. The lowercase... Read More

Slaughter is the best medicine

The premise for FF Ernestine came from the search for a versatile monolinear text face whose design could transmit seemingly opposite feelings. Its designer, Nina Stössinger, hoped to develop a solution that would feel inviting, but also serious; somewhat feminine, but not too swirly-girly – at once both charming and sturdy. The design’s rather large x-height and wide, open shapes allow it to... Read More

No news is the mother of invention

FF Karbid is a contemporary interpretation of storefront lettering done between 1900 and the late 1930s and preserved due to the German Democratic Republic’s economy of scarcity. In the beginning of the 1990s, FF Karbid’s designer Verena Gerlach began documenting storefront lettering in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg and Mitte districts. Sadly, these have since almost entirely disappeared, due to... Read More

Hot and spicy duck heart

FF Masala is a small sans and script family from French type designer Xavier Dupré. The initial idea for the typeface was to create a casual-style sans to complement his earlier FF Tartine Script. After some refining and reconsideration, FF Masala became a a stand-alone product, with three sans styles including italics, and a set of script faces, drawn in three weights. FF Masala Script...

A friction is very interesting

In his primary role as an editorial and magazine designer, Łukasz Dziedzic has been in a constant search for new typefaces. Most of his own type designs originate from situations where he felt none of the available faces worked “quite right” in the context of a project he was working on. Therefore most of his typefaces have at some point seen use in real magazine layouts, and have been refined... Read More

Let us do the birds friend

Based on square forms, FF QType successfully walks the difficult line between pure geometry and legibility. Achaz Reuss used his years of type design experience to flesh out a concept that could have been, in the hands of a student or amateur, a much less useful result. Five subfamilies make up the whole (Compressed, Condensed, Semi Extended, Extended and Square) each in five weights (Extra... Read More

Especially FF Typeface Six and Seven

FF Typeface Four is a two-style series from Neville Brody. Both styles are extremely narrow, stylized sanses. The letters are nearly... Read More

No kicking of balls please

FUSE Classics is a collection of some of the most interesting designs from the first years of FUSE. The designers were asked to revisit the original fonts, and complete the designs. Pierre di Sciullo comments on his contribution to the FUSE Classic package: In FF Scratched Out, each letter tries to disappear, mutilating itself. And in effect, each letter is illegible when viewed alone. But... Read More
