Next up in our Über FontFont series is Hannes von Döhren and Livius F. Dietzel’s functional and versatile FF Basic Gothic. Released in 2010, Hannes and Livius took inspiration from the letterforms of Gill Sans and Antique Olive to come up with a sans serif that was optimized for maximum legibility. At first glance it has a strikingly stripped back appearance but on closer inspection the precise, refined curves and straight lines add a touch of finesse.
Über FontFonts are typefaces that have been in demand the most during the last three months.permalink
After three jam-packed months that included another release, a whole host of interviews and numerous in-use cases; the time has come again to announce our ÜberFontFonts (the rising stars of our library) for the previous quarter.
Our top three ÜberFontFonts are:
FF Strada by Albert Pinggera is a curvaceous and humane sans serif full of versatility. With three sub-families and a number of updates and developments, it is one of our bestsellers and an award winner.
FF Amman, by Yanone, is a bi-script family that supports both Arabic and Latin script. It is one of the largest Arabic–Latin typeface families designed to date, and one of the very few where both the Arabic and the Latin characters were drawn from scratch by the same designer at one time.
FF Pitu is one of our most swashy serifs, with pronounced stroke modulation and blade-shaped stroke endings. Its calligraphic loveliness makes it a beautiful display face. Part of our Collection tier, a selection of cost effective typographical treasures offered as full-families with OpenType feature support, FF Pitu Pro is only €59 for three weights.permalink
