The FF Flava design is a series of four related “families,” each of which has just a single font. The series comes from Donald Beekman, an active member of the Dutch music scene. As a graphic designer, Beekman regularly designs a lot of hip-hop CD covers and related ephemera.

A perennial favorite of his music clients has been the Aachen Bold typeface. Perhaps it was requested so often for its heaviness and roughness. Working with Aachen gave Beekman the idea to develop a more outspoken alternative, with a more contemporary feel. The first version of his new typeface was used on a CD called Rap Flavas, hence the name FF Flava.

FF Flava’s claim to fame came when it was used as the headline face in the book “From Brooklyn to Breukelen,” a summary of 20 years of hip-hop music in the Netherlands. Beekman calls it his “ultimate nu-skool hip-hop font.”

The FF Flava series contains a standard variant, where the tops and the bottoms of each letter are flat. FF Flava Hi has letters with a rounded top, while FF Flava Lo has letters with a rounded bottom. In FF Flava Round, both the tops and the bottoms of the letters are curved. However, the sides of the forms remain straight. The four variants of FF Flava may be layered, too, to create instant logos, or a dramatic headline effect.
