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.
The second of our posts on the FF Quixo notebook provides an insight into its design, specifications and printing via hand drawn sketches and images taken throughout the production process.

Our feet have just about touched the ground since the wonderful whirlwind that was TYPO Berlin 2013 last week. So, we thought we’d 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.
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 Spiekermann’s print workshop and the Calligraphy and Lettering Workshop by our Head of Type, Andreas Frohloff.
