FF Strada’s designer Albert Pinggera is based in Alto Adige, a German-speaking region in Northern Italy. While cutting letters in stone at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KABK) in The Hague, Pinggera developed the concept that ultimately would become FF Strada Italic. Its curved endings and pointed terminals create a strong identity for the typeface, while its fluid strokes and rigid fit allow plenty of distinction between normal and italic styles. Developed and adjusted over five years, the result is three sub-families: Text, Small Caps and Condensed. As a designer specialized in complex typographic projects, Pinggera made his typeface to function equally well in book design, signage, and corporate design. In five weights, FF Strada gives the typographer multiple options for variation in composition and scale. The typeface won a Certificate of Excellence in Type Design from the Type Directors Club of New York in 2003, and was selected as one of the best typefaces of the first decade of the 21st century by the ATypI in their Letter.2 competition, announced in October 2011.
