Xavier Dupré’s FF Yoga mixes the harshness of blackletters with the balanced rhythm and round shapes of the Garalde typefaces. The serif weights, with their sturdy forms, are a good choice for body text; they also serve as an original headline face because of their subtly chiseled counters. FF Yoga Sans is a contemporary alternative to Gill Sans, and a sober companion to FF Yoga Serif.
The FF Yoga family is a true type system, conceived for newspapers and magazines and featuring strong personality and good legibility. Unlike many similar designs, the sans wasn’t designed by “chopping off” the serifs of FF Yoga and reducing the contrast. Rather, both branches of the family tree were designed concurrently. The family was made to work together, sharing the same proportions, x-height, and relative weight. The design also has much in common with other Xavier Dupré typefaces, like FF Masala, which can be used to deliver more informal content alongside FF Yoga.
The FF Yoga fonts include standard ligatures, small caps, case-sensitive forms, lining and oldstyle figures in tabular and proportional widths, and arbitrary fractions. The six weights from hairline to bold offer many combinations and versatility, especially for display and body text in magazines.
FF Yoga supports 114 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
