Erik Spiekermann’s FF Meta is the foundation of the FontFont library, released at the label’s inception and still a signature of the brand. Its ancestor – PT55 (1985) – was conceived for the West German Post Office as an economical typeface for use at small point sizes, but once FF Meta was released to the public it was used for nearly everything, quickly becoming one of the most popular typefaces of the computer era. It has been called the “Helvetica of the ’90s” – not because the two typefaces have anything aesthetically in common – but because FF Meta fulfills so well the needs of modern communication. Oded Ezer designed a Hebrew version for Book and Bold.
FF Meta supports 168 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, Russian, German, French, Greek and Hebrew in Latin, Cyrillic, Greek, and Hebrew scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
