Few applications are outside FF Nort’s broad range. Its large x-height, open counters and wide apertures make it equally suited to print and interactive design projects. It excels in text sizes for captions, subheads and long-form copy. As stroke weight increases, FF Nort becomes a powerful display type tool. From simple text copy to complicated brand design, and everything in between, FF Nort can be the go-to design for virtually any project.
FF Nort’s roots are in the British Transport typefaces. Inspired by this mid-20th century design, Hemker reimagined it for 21st century. “As good as the British design is,” he explains, “it’s bound by decades-old technologies. I took the skeleton of the earlier design and made a typeface what is more versatile – and in the process, more striking.” As a result, FF Nort is industrial strength – but also has a friendly, slightly British, demeanor. There is a handmade quality to the design that invites reading. Its comfortable charm at text sizes becomes more assertive as stroke weight increases.
