In Alex Scholing’s own words, “FF Engine was an attempt at making a good, solid, general-purpose typeface with as little effort as possible. The first thing I did to reduce complications was do away with the contrast in the letters, which means FF Engine is a so-called monolinear typeface (well, almost; try to find how I cheated …). To enhance legibility I added small serif-like bulges at the ends of the stems.” Scholing later decided that his first release was rather immature – not necessarily a bad thing, however, he continued to polish the same concept, ultimately became FF Roice in 2003.
