News: Tagged as FF Good
We came across this fantastic FF Good “In-Use” case by the Warsaw Museum and its recent branding overhaul. The stylish and tasteful rebrand saw a full update of all marketing material, stationary and advertisements.
As a sans serif family in the American Gothic tradition FF Good has something of an old heritage whilst maintaining a new and modern feel. This helps the typeface to effectively convey the sense of the history held by the museum, whilst keeping its image firmly in the 21st century.permalink
Following the latest announcement on the incredible extension of FF Good and FF Good Headline we are pleased to say that it is not the last of the “good news”.
As of now, all FF Good News and FF Good Headline News weights in all widths (formerly known as Book weights and specially drawn for setting newspaper copy) are available for just five of whichever currency you shop in! This makes for a nice incentive to test several widths before deciding on particular widths or even the whole family.
In celebration of the incredible extension of FF Good we created a A1 sized colour scale poster using four Pantone colours (Pantone Violet, Pantone Green, Pantone Orange 021 and Pantone 806) displaying all 96 styles.
Copies of the fantastic poster will be available at TYPO Berlin this coming May.
About FF Good
FF Good is a straight-sided sans serif in the American Gothic tradition, designed by Warsaw-based Łukasz Dziedzic. Despite having something of an “old-fashioned” heritage, FF Good feels new. Many customers agree: the sturdy, legible forms of FF Good have been put to good use in the Polish-language tech magazine ‘Komputer Swiat’, the German and Russian edition of British celebrity tabloid OK!, and AP’s (Associated Press) new corporate design.
FF Good is the perfect companion for interface, editorial and web designers due to its subtle weight and width graduation. This allows the individual to pick the style best suited to their layout.
Łukasz Dziedzic built FF More to work alongside his FF Good sans serif typeface, resulting in a powerhouse superfamily, versatile in both its function and aesthetic. Like FF Good, all of the styles in the FF More family include a Cyrillic character set. This increases the editorial design potential of the typeface significantly.
We can gleefully declare our long awaited release is finally here! And what an interesting one it has turned out to be.
New Design: FF Antithesis
Based on the design principle of three poles, FF Antithesis is designed around the tension and dialogue between each of these. There are three members of the display family: Regular, Italic and Bold of which all relate to each other in a very high visual contrast.
The Regular member is a rather slabby serif, the Italic a connected script and the Bold a fat sans serif. Each are designed to work with each of the other two, in order to create design with high visual tension. Designed with a less is more attitude in terms of family size, Yanone has also created a contemporary dance art and music based film to accompany the typeface. Set to be launched this spring at TYPO San Francisco and TYPO Berlin, the purpose of the ten minute film is to present the typeface as more than just a typeface but as an interdisciplinary work of art.
A typeface perfectly apt for creative purposes and as part of statement pieces it looks set to become the new cool font of choice.
New Extension: FF Good
The size of our next announcement is a first for us here at FontFont.
FF Good, the upright, straight-sided sans serif designed by Warsaw based designer Łukasz Dziedzic, originally entered the library as a typeface with nine styles. However following an overhaul in 2010 the typeface jumped to 30 styles with an additional 30 styles for the titling version FF Good Headline.
Now within the FF 66 release the family has received yet another revamp making FF Good and FF Good Headline our biggest typeface family ever with a total of 196 styles between them! The newly extended family now includes seven weights ranging from Light to Ultra, and seven widths from Compressed to Extended for both FF Good and FF Good Headline, all with matching italics and small caps for both roman and italic styles.
Due to its subtle weight and width graduation, it is the perfect companion for interface, editorial, and web designers. This allows the individual to pick the style best suited to their layout.
And for a extra dose of good news we can also confirm that as of the latest release the new style FF Good News will be available at the incredible price of 5 EUR/GBP/AUS/USD.
Reorganisation: FF Ginger Flamboyant
FF Ginger Flamboyant consists of Light and Regular, which add a spark to individual letters and initial capitals, vamping up the plainest of texts.
FF Ginger is an alternative to the widely-used Crillee and Serpentine faces, which are especially popular for their bold italic variants. They express speed and dynamism and are popular choices for internet providers, couriers, service bureaus, etc. FF Ginger’s Light weight and matching icons extend its typographic scope.permalink

The new FontFonts
FF Basic Gothic — Due to its popularity online, Verdana has effectively become the basic sans serif. Yet in print it tends to looks too heavy and a little unwieldy. As a response to this FontFont releases FF Basic Gothic. Influenced by the early sans serif typefaces of the 19th century and developed for today’s highest standards, it is a sans serif optimized for maximum legibility. With its functional, basic look, it is willful but pleasant at the same time. Inspired by the unique letter forms of Gill Sans and Antique Olive, designers Hannes von Döhren and Livius Dietzel searched for exceptional yet legible proportions. At the same time, the letters are stripped down to their basic forms, with precise curves and straight lines, making FF Basic Gothic extremely versatile for a multitude of applications.
Their extended weight range makes it interesting for corporate designers; TYPO Berlin 2011 already trusts on FF Basic Gothic (as well as on FF Scala). The type family performs especially well in small sizes, both in print and on the screen – thanks to the hinting experts of the FontFont Type Department.read more
