In the following interview Erik and Ralph discuss the origin of FF Real, design characteristics and technical details as well as a world première.
FF Real began as the voice of Erik Spiekermann’s biography Hello, I am Erik, drawn in just two styles, one for headlines and one for text. Thirteen weights each.
A unique mixture of influences go into Jens Kutílek’s FF Hertz. The result is a mighty and versatile text suite in six weights.
The model European industrial sans, Albert-Jan Pool’s FF DIN keeps getting better. This latest update includes the addition of two new weights, Thin and Extra Light.
Not just any serif face is up to the task of pairing well with a dazzling show-stopper like Sascha Timplan’s Prism. Mike Abbink’s Brando seems to mix in naturally.
