FF Ropsen Script was created in 1999 from various handwriting sources. Early versions were used in the dialog boxes of schoolbooks that the typeface’s designer was laying out at the time. Over several months, the typeface was refined until a definitive concept was reached: combining the traits of hand-written characters with the framework of a versatile text face, which would work large as well as in blocks of text of moderate length. 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. The regular and bold weights may be combined for added emphasis and, by using a larger point size, the small caps work as an extra-bold upper case. Now for the name: In Prenzlauer Berg, a district in the former East Berlin, a street is named after the American singer Paul Robeson. Prenzlauer Berg is also home to FF Ropsen Script’s designer, Jürgen Brinckmann. All of his German neighbors pronounce the Robeson Street “Ropsen” – Brinckmann thought this a fine name for the friendly face.
