FF Milo & FF Milo Serif
Mike Abbink began work on FF Milo in 2000 with the goal of creating a compact typeface with very short ascenders and descenders. Because of its compact design FF Milo is a workhorse typeface suitable for magazine and newspaper typography. It has modern bones with a touch of detail for distinction (especially in the italics). The designer named the typeface after a resilient grain. Much like corn or grain is for many cultures, FF Milo is intended to be a solid staple of any typographic diet.
With the help of Paul van der Laan for kerning, spacing and production, Abbink developed FF Milo Serif as a companion to the Sans, but it is also perfectly suitable as a stand alone typeface or used together with any other sans serif typeface. Like its counterpart, FF Milo Serif is also a resilient grain. Although rooted with historical attributes it is truly a contemporary face. FF Milo Serif comes with small caps, tabular figures, oldstyle figures, lining figures, as well as a wealth of ligatures.
FF Milo and FF Milo Serif are available separately in the packages below. Also listed are Suites which contain complementary weights from both families. The Basic Suite has Text, Bold, and Italics from each family. The Suite adds Black and Black Italic.
Each font page includes a specimen PDF, and we also recommend downloading and printing this sample sheet (100K PDF) to get a feeling for FF Milo in a text setting.
