Łukasz Dziedzic is known for his expertly executed, extensive type families – FF Clan® comes in 6 widths, each in 7 weights with matching italics which amounts to 84 styles, and the sans/serif combination of FF Good® and FF More® counts an impressive total of 226 styles. In the wake of these popular typefaces Łukasz doesn’t let us down with his latest FF Eggo™, his very own and unique approach to brush scripts.

When asked by a friend and grocer for something script-like to use in his store, the casual, loose calligraphic script that would eventually become FF Eggo™ came into existence. All five weights have italics – a rare feature for scripts.

A unique characteristic of the type family is that the weights alter the atmosphere of the fonts: the thin style is reminiscent of a pen or a thin marker, whilst the bolder styles seem to have been written with a brush or marker. Another feature that makes FF Eggo stand out among the more traditional scripts is that the uppercase also manages to work perfectly well in all-caps setting.

Useful for sign lettering to chalkboards, FF Eggo was designed to be flexible, and it fulfills this purpose admirably.
