FF Antithesis Totebags

As part of the release of Yanone’s FF Antithesis and its movie premiere at this year’s TYPO Berlin 2014, we created a limited edition FF Antithesis tote bag. Using Pantone 811 the 100% cotton bag features a design based on the design principles by Yanone himself.

The bag will only be available at TYPO Berlin 2014 so be sure to keep an eye out for one.

FF Good Poster

In celebration of the incredible extension of FF Good we created a A1 sized colour scale poster using four Pantone colours (Pantone VioletPantone GreenPantone Orange 021 and Pantone 806) displaying all 96 styles.

The design is a nod to Erik van Blokland’s Superpolator interpolation visualization with gradients around four poles (Compressed Light, Extended Light, Compressed Ultra, Extended Ultra).

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.

TYPO Berlin highlights

Erik Spiekermann print workshopOur feet have just about touched the ground since the wonderful whirlwind that was TYPO Berlin 2013 last week. So, we thought wed share some snippets and snapshots.

Taking place over three days and reaching it's eighteenth year running, this year’s TYPO Berlin was one of the biggest yet with design superstars such as Jessica Walsh, Neville Brody, Albert-Jan Pool and Ken Garland.

This year’s conference also played host to the first ever Type Review that took place on Friday 17 May. Members of our official TypeBoard, Erik Spiekermann, Stephen Coles, Erik van Blokland, Andreas Frohloff, Jürgen Siebert and Ivo Gabrowitsch were let loose on stage to critique, commend and appraise typefaces in public. 

FontFont Type Review

FontFont Type Review We were also delighted to meet up with a number of our FontFont designers who were at TYPO Berlin.

The quality of the speakers was fantastic and highlights included Simon Manchipp and Neville Brody. There was a number of workshops to take part in, including Erik Spiekermanns print workshop and the Calligraphy and Lettering Workshop by our Head of Type, Andreas Frohloff.

If you missed out on the conference, have a peek at our Flickr profile for more visual delight, have a read about the conference on the TYPO blog and watch the videos. Designer Drinks
