Martin Wenzel’s original idea for FF Duper was developed in 1998, but it evolved into a kind of informal FF Profile in the end. His final FF Duper design has a home-made touch, but provides all typographic qualities of a modern OpenType font. FF Duper consists of Regular, Bold, Regular Italic and Bold Italic weights, supports more than 60 languages (in the Pro version), has several figure sets and fractions and includes alternative forms for a, g and y as well as a set of arrows, bullets and ornaments. And there is a special extra: All weights contain three versions of each glyph and via an OpenType feature the three alternatives are used in succession, treating vowels and consonants separately and recognizing even spaces between words for a lively and hand-made appearance of the typed text. Preliminary versions of the typeface have already been successful in education and school projects, but there are surely more areas where FF Duper’s friendly personality perfectly fits in.
FF Duper supports 114 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
