FF Ropsen Script was created in 1999 from various handwriting samples; early versions were used in the dialog boxes of schoolbooks that the typeface’s designer was laying out. Over several months, the typeface was refined until the definitive concept was reached: combining the traits of hand-written characters with the framework of a versatile text face, which would work in headline as well as in blocks of text. The regular and bold weights can be combined for added emphasis and, by using a larger point size, the small caps work as an extra-bold upper case. FF Ropsen Script is as well-suited to newspaper design as it is for packaging and event promotion – equally at home in the cultural and commercial worlds.

In Prenzlauer Berg, a district in the former East Berlin, there is a street named for the American singer Paul Robeson. Prenzlauer Berg is also home to FF Ropsen Script’s designer, Jürgen Brinckmann. All of his German neighbors pronounced the Robeson Street “Ropsen” – Brinckmann thought this a fine name for a friendly face.
