FF Franziska 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.)
Started as a master thesis at Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel (Germany) under the guidance of Albert-Jan Pool and Prof. André Heers in 2012, FF Franziska is a robust serif type family for setting body copy as well as headlines using Hairline and Black. The typeface has been conceived as a hybrid of a serif and slab serif which becomes evident when comparing the weights from Hairline to Black. It has a generous x-height and short descenders. The italics have a rather slight angle of slope and playful shapes derived from handwriting. A range of icons including various arrows and signs like thumb up and down complement the usual figure sets, small caps and stylistic alternates.
