We are in Hamburg and at home with type designer and creative director Achaz Reuss for the latest instalment of our ‘At Home With’ series. He is one design half (alongside Albert-Jan Pool) behind our bestseller FF DIN and is also responsible for one of our recent Über FontFonts, FF QType.
In green-scape surrounds, this classic modernist home takes on a quiet elegance and understated design sensibility. The beauty is in the finer details and the arrangement of the space and everything within it. Much like his typefaces, it also encompasses a new kind of traditional – an effortless and royal modern kind.
FontFonts by Achaz Reuss:
Based on a square, FF QType is the latest rising star of our library – our so-called ÜberFontFont for the past quarter.
Traversing the somewhat tricky balance between pure geometry and legibility, FF QType is the brainchild of Achaz Reuss. It contains a vast 20 styles comprising of five subfamilies (Compressed, Condensed, Semi Extended, Extended and Square) each with five weights.
Following firm rules, it is geometric yet optically balanced; the horizontals are thinner than the verticals. The E and C terminals are at angle giving the typeface a lively, more playful character.permalink
