A brand new design ideal for modern devices, two long awaited and highly anticipated extensions and a whole host of language updates and new Office and Web versions – say hello to FF 61, our latest release.
FF Videtur is based on bitmap fonts that were created by Axel Bertram, one of East Germany’s most legendary designers, for the state television broadcaster GDR-TV. Bertram spent a great deal of time researching and testing the display conditions of 625-line television screens. His findings prompted the creation of Videtur, a functional open serif with moderate contrast and a highly unique shape. Fast forward two decades later and with a helping hand from FontFont’s Head of Type, Andreas Frohloff, the whole character set has been completely re-drawn and reinvigorated. The best characteristics of the earlier forms were kept but the typeface’s vertical proportions, serif shape, and stroke contrast have been carefully reconsidered.
Revamped, new weights and new language support
We are delighted to introduce the new completely revamped and updated FF Netto. Daniel Utz’s no frills spurless sans serif has been one of the FontFonts of choice, particularly on the web, ever since its release back in 2008. The new FF Netto has slightly increased spacing, revised curves and connections and two new extreme weights, the delicate and sinewy Thin and the confident and chunky Black. As if this wasn’t enough, Daniel Utz with help from the Type Team have also added new italics for all weights and Pro language support.
Language extensions and format additions
Our entire Premium Tier is now available in Pro, Offc and Web formats. So, now you can bring consistency and typographical finesse in more languages and across more applications/platforms.
