Blaze up the custom made of going

FF Jackie is a semi-script/semi-sans series of typefaces. Its basic variants – in regular and bold weights – are inspired from the lettering on Jack Daniel’s whiskey labels. The typeface’s designer, Dario Muhafara, wanted to create a face with a contemporary look, somewhere between a retro sans and a serious script.

One step ahead to civilization

One of Berlin’s must-visit cultural stops is the Prater, a beer garden in Prenzlauer Berg, a district in the eastern part of Berlin. The Prater easily has one of the most unique graphic identities in the city, completely handmade by artist-illustrator Henning Wagenbreth.

Life’s a bitch, and I’m a dog

London designer John Critchley worked with illustrator Darren Raven to design a type family based on Darren’s spontaneous, symbolic, comic-like illustrations. The resulting design, FF Bokka, has four variations: Solid, Outline, Half Shadow and Shadow. These versions can be layered and matched with no less than a full set of illustrations from its Drawings style. Fun for all ages!

The tendency toward display and ornametal... Read More

The roots of Gill Sans can be traced to the typeface that Gill's teacher, Edward Johnston, designed for the signage of the London Underground Railway in 1918. Gill´s alphabet is more classical in proportion and contains what have become known as his signature flared... Read More

Beware of the brick in front of you

Gillies Gothic font was originally designed by William S. Gillies for Bauer'sche Schriftgiesserei. The Extra Bold Weight was designed by Freda Sack at Letraset Design Studio and later the Extra Bold Shaded was designed by Phillip Kelly at Letraset. The extravagant capitals should be used as initials with the more reserved lowercase, and the lowercase should be set closely, overlapping where... Read More
