The typefaces in the FF Eboy family are based on the geometrical/pixel-nature of screen fonts. They were created especially for use on screen/web. Intrepid designers won’t shy away from using them in print, however!
There are three FF Eboy styles: REG, TNT, and EXT. Each one is available in three weights – or rather resolutions. Alpha, the smallest, is based on a five-pixel-high grid, and has been optimized for 8 pt text at a screen resolution of 72 dpi. This is the perfect size for small print. Beta, the medium size, is based on a seven-pixel grid, and is at its best in 12 pt on 72 dpi. Gamma, the largest, is based on a nine-pixel grid and best suited to 16 pt on 72 dpi.
The package also includes a bonus font family – FF Xcreen – which also has three weights: Straight, Linex, and Double. The initial idea was to create a screen font with minimum height. Straight is optimized for 7 px on 72 dpi and the other two are for 14 px on 72 dpi.
