FF67 New Release: FF Franziska

June 18th, 2014

FF Franziska

Originating from Jakob Runge’s masters thesis at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel, FF Franziska was selected at the first public TypeBoard meeting during TYPO Berlin 2013. Planned as a hybrid of sturdy slab and serif, its regular weight is built to sustain unfavourable circumstances, such as bad printing techniques or low resolution screens. The extreme weights of the family represent the two poles of FF Franziska: the quiet mono-linear and filigree Hairline feels like a pure slab serif, whilst the dark and substantial Black weight comes with the feeling of a serif.

A diverse typeface, its extroverted italic differs itself from the roman by its playful shapes which can often be found in handwriting.

The 20 style family is already proving itself to be an exceptionally useful typographic tool with a pre-release version of the typeface already in use as a text face for the German ZEITmagazine and the Swiss printed Bündner Tagblatt among several other publications.
