FF Olsen is a sturdy text face, specifically designed to achieve maximum readability at small sizes. The typeface combines details from both sans and serif faces, incorporating the best of both worlds into one type design. The family’s roman is almost a slab serif, with firm, tapered serifs, not unlike those of Gerard Unger’s Swift. It is virtually indestructible. The italics have the structure of a semi serif. In its original version – even before FontFont published it – the Danish Ministry of Education adopted FF Olsen as its corporate typeface. The family comes in Light, Regular, Bold weights, all with matching italics and small caps.
FF Olsen 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.)
