FF Profile marries timeless forms to a contemporary approach. The warm design is a sans serif family made for legibility by Martin Wenzel, a German designer with a Dutch education in letters. After having made the highly original display typefaces FF Primary and FF Rekord, his starting point for this family was the broad-nibbed pen. FF Profile features attractive, uncluttered forms drawn with a minimal contrast. The capitals feature classical, humanist proportions. Terminal angles and lead-in strokes hint at serifs. Quite legible at small sizes, FF Profile also acts as an individual headline face. Its character set features a wide range of alternates: each style contains four different ampersands, for example. The typeface uses space frugally; even the heaviest weights were drawn somewhat compactly to achieve this. Greek and Cyrillic versions of the family were added in 2011 and 2013, respectively. FF Profile received a Certificate of Excellence in Type Design in 2000 from the Type Directors Club of New York.
