FF Nuvo is a contemporary sans with a slight contrast. Certain characters have a calligraphic touch, especially a, g and y. The typeface offers several alternate characters that may be substituted – for example: a, g, k, s, y – for additional typographic range in text. Designer Siegfried Rückel developed the concept for FF Nuvo during a stay in Paris, after being inspired by the extravagant appearance of French magazine typography. He wanted to design a rounded typeface with its roundness being an integral part of the design, not merely an afterthought. He took advantage of the visual limitations of our eyes: stroke endings in FF Nuvo appear soft when seen from a distance, or when set at small point sizes, but reveal their peculiar forms up close. FF Nuvo functions suitably in editorial design, from headlines down to longer texts, as well as for advertising, packaging, or corporate design. A new monospaced variant was added in 2011: FF Nuvo Mono. It matches the weights and features as the original FF Nuvo, including Small Caps, Italics, etc. FF Nuvo Mono has a slightly lower x-height than the letters in FF Nuvo, to better emphasize the typewriter-like character.
