FF Transit

Designed by MetaDesign. Published by FontFont in 1997

Starts at $45.00 for a single style and is available for:

FF Transit is a highly legible typeface that works well for readers who need quick orientation while en route. Designed to blend aesthetic quality with legibility, it was originally designed by MetaDesign in Berlin for the official use of the Berlin Public Transportation Services (BVG) and Düsseldorf Airport. Based on Frutiger (licensed from Linotype), it is a freshly drawn, narrow version with original italics and many variants made for rigorous applications in a complex signage system. Front and Back are subtle variations which compensate for the visual distortion that appears on illuminated signs which are either backlit or lit from the front. These variants are also useful for the compensation sometimes required by white text on a black background.

J’ai vu un punk afghan et deux clowns aux Monsieur Jack. Où l'obèse jury mûr? Mon pauvre zébu ankylosé choque deux fois ton wagon jaune.

Noel Gallagher may not read it
Noel Gallagher’s statement that reading fiction is a “fucking waste of time” and readers are “putting themselves a tiny little bit above the rest of us” – is a valuable contribution.
Cathy Nicol: Isle of Joy
Vince Smith met bandmates Jim Kelly and Nancy Gibbs at a Sex Pistols concert, where he tried to kiss Sid Vicious’ guitar and got a bloody nose. Together they formed Aftershock, and for a while they made a lot of noise, a bit of money and caused a sensation wherever they went.
