FF Good is a straight-sided sans serif in the American Gothic tradition, designed by Warsaw-based Łukasz Dziedzic. Despite having something of an “old-fashioned” heritage, FF Good feels new. Many customers agree: the sturdy, legible forms of FF Good have been put to good use in the Polish-language tech magazine ‘Komputer Swiat’, the German and Russian edition of British celebrity tabloid OK!, and AP’s (Associated Press) new corporate design.
Although initially released as a modest-sized family, the typeface was radically overhauled in 2010, increasing from nine styles to 30 styles, with an additional 30-style sibling called FF Good Headline. In 2014, the type system was extended again to become FontFont’s largest family ever with an incredible total of 196 styles. This includes seven weights ranging from Light to Ultra, and seven widths from Compressed to Extended for both FF Good and FF Good Headline, all with matching italics and small caps for both roman and italic styles. Due to its subtle weight and width graduation, it is the perfect companion for interface, editorial, and web designers. This allows the individual to pick the style best suited to their layout.
As a contemporary competitor to classic American Gothic style typefaces—like Franklin Gothic, News Gothic, or Trade Gothic—it was necessary that an expanded FF Good also offers customers both Text and Display versions. The base FF Good fonts are mastered for text use, whilst FF Good Headline aims for maximum compactness. Its low cap height together with trimmed ascenders and descenders give a special punch to headlines or larger-sized copy in publications such as newspapers, magazines, and blogs.
There is even more good news about FF Good: it has something of a serif companion. Łukasz Dziedzic built FF Good to work alongside FF More, resulting in a powerhouse superfamily that is versatile in both its function and aesthetics. Few extensively developed families that work so well together as FF Good does with FF More.
FF Good supports 164 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, Russian, German and French in Latin and Cyrillic scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
