Due to its popularity online, Verdana has effectively become the default sans serif typeface. Yet in print it tends to looks too heavy and a little unwieldy. As a response to this, FontFont released FF Basic Gothic. Influenced by the early sans serif typefaces of the 19th century and developed for today’s highest standards, it is a sans serif optimized for maximum legibility. With its functional, basic look, it is willful but pleasant at the same time.

Inspired by the unique letter forms of Gill Sans and Antique Olive, designers Hannes von Döhren and Livius F. Dietzel searched for exceptional yet legible proportions. At the same time, the letters were stripped down to their basic forms, with precise curves and straight lines, making FF Basic Gothic extremely versatile for a multitude of applications. Corporate Designers like the family’s extended weight range, too.

The type family performs especially well in small sizes, both in print and on the screen—thanks to the hinting experts of the FontFont Type Department. The heavy weights have stronger contrasts and unfold their strength in bigger sizes. They have an eye-catching appearance in newspaper or magazine headlines.

FF 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.

FF Basic Gothic™ has 16 Styles
