FF Autotrace, after FF Blur, is the second Neville Brody typeface to be named after a digital alienation effect. The term “autotrace” refers to the automatic vectorizing of a scanned bitmap image. In this process, irregularities in the contours become exaggerated as the resolution of the bitmaps are increased. This disturbed effect is the aesthetic basis for FF Autotrace. Just like FF Blur, Brody named his typeface after this generic computer term to show that he understands this design to be the first, the last, and the only one of its kind, i. e., the definitive face to represent this digital effect.
FF Autotrace 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.)
