FF Basic Gothic Family

Basic Gothic is a sans serif type family of eight weights plus matching italics. It was designed by Hannes von Döhren and Livius F. Dietzel in 2009/10. Influenced by the early sans serif typefaces of the 19th century and developed for today’s highest standards, they created a functional family optimized for maximum legibility.

Basic Gothic has a functional, basic look, being willful but pleasant at the same time. The unique letter forms of Gill or Antique Olive inspired the designers to search for exceptional yet legible proportions. At the same time, the letters are stripped down to their basic forms, with precise curves and straight lines, making Basic Gothic extremely versatile for a multitude of applications. Basic Gothic performs especially well in small sizes.

The heavy weights have stronger contrasts and unfold their strength in bigger sizes. They have an eye-catching appearance in newspaper or magazine headlines.

Basic Gothic is equipped for complex, professional typography. The OpenType Pro fonts have an extended character set to support Central and Eastern European as well as Western European languages. Each font includes small caps, fractions, old style, lining and tabular numbers, scientific superior/inferior figures, alternates and a set of arrows.
