FF Scuba dancing to a different beat

July 11th, 2012

If music be the food of love, play on. If type is what voice is to speech, speak louder. Here at FontFont, we are driven by our love for type and powered by a passion for music.

Inspired by the friendly and distinctive character of FF Scuba by Felix Braden and the newest EP from the rising star Tourist; we wanted to combine both passions and explore a different way of ‘showing’ type. We are delighted to share with our video for FF Scuba.

About FF Scuba

Searching for an offline companion for Verdana and not finding the exact tone he was looking for, designer Felix Braden set off to develop FF Scuba.

It’s a legible contemporary sans with a frank, friendly, distinctive character. In small sizes FF Scuba blends well and in display sizes it rings fresh and original. It combines constructed letters — like an almost rectangular o — with dynamic strokes and other elements that refer to handwriting, lending a lively touch to the font’s truly technical roots.

For a limited time, FF Scuba Regular OT and Web are available for free download.
