The typeface FF Super Grotesk is based on a 1930s design by Arno Drescher which was the most widely used lead-type sans serif face in East Germany – the GDR’s equivalent of the unavailable Futura. Today, the typeface can only be found in old specimen books and early East German printed matter, both of which served as source material for FF Super Grotesk. The original character set was augmented with special symbols and characters, alternatives for lowercase ‘a’ and ‘g’, and oldstyle figures.
FF Super Grotesk supports 101 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
