FF ThreeSix is a vast optical type system consisting of six variants across eight weights, including four additional monospaced weights. It is the result of London-based Paul McNeil’s and Hamish Muir’s experiments in working within the restrictive rules of geometry to generate simple typographic forms. A wide range of almost imperceptible optical corrections are used to create the illusion of evenness in the overall texture. The award-winning system – recognized with an ISTD Premier Award and Certificate of Excellence – is based on a grid of 36 unit squares subdivided into 9 units and constructed using only straight lines and circular arcs. Its cap-height, x-height, ascent and descent measurements are consistent across all fonts and weights. The grid also determines character and word spacing, with all side-bearings and kerning pair values conforming to 9 unit increments. Wim Crouwel noted: ‘It is a fascination for the use of geometric systems in design that has resulted in these remarkable typefaces.’
