FF Utility is a creative, contemporary sans serif. The original design grew out of Lukas Schneider’s graduate thesis project, a small family of typefaces named Gazoline, whilst he was studying at the Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG) Offenbach in Germany. FF Utility reads clear and sets a mean line of text. Highly versatile, you can use it for almost anything. The family includes seven weights from thin through to black. There isn’t an italic, but with a family like this, you don’t really need them: instead you can use weight for emphasis – such as bold with light or black and regular. FF Utility’s fonts contain four figure sets, small caps as well as alternate a and g characters for added typographic flexibility. The thin and extra light weights are designed for larger applications like headlines.
FF Utility supports 113 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
