Albert Boton is one of the bright lights of 20th century typeface design in France. In 2002, he developed two new typefaces for FontFont: FF Aircraft and FF Studio. These are rather different from his general body of work. FF Aircraft and FF Studio are mediations on modernist letterform designs from the period between 1920 and 1935. Boton’s typographic exercises are inspired by studies undertaken at the Bauhaus, as well as by Austrian, German, and Swiss designers like Theo Balmer, Herber Bayer, and Julius Klinger, or Dutch designers like Bart van der Leck and Theo van Doesbourg.
Together with FF District Bold and FF Zan, FF Aircraft, and FF Studio are part of the FF Bastille Display family, which is a package of display fonts rooted in Boton’s previous work in advertising and package design.
FF Aircraft supports 63 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
