Morisawa Awards 1990: FF Angie
FF Angie Regular by Jean François Porchez won the Brattinga prize at the 1990 Morisawa awards in Japan, a typeface contest established in 1984 by Morisawa & Company, Tokyo and held every three years until 2002.
FF Angie has a humanistic touch. We find the roots of FF Angie in cuneiform writing. Its asymmetrical serifs remind us of triangular-shaped figures engraved onto tablets. Legibility is improved by keeping letter shapes open and distinct from one another. The Italics are lighter, narrower and more flowing than the Romans. Ornaments together with Black Open caps for headlines complete the FF Angie family. With the release of the OpenType versions Demi Bold and Extra Bold weights have been added.
