ÜberFontFont FF Sero

Every three months we name our highest climbing fonts in the popularity charts for the past quarter. We call these our ÜberFontFonts.

American Grotesque in form with the legibility of a Humanist Sans, Jörg Hemker’s second FontFont release, FF Sero is the latest chart topping star addition to the ÜberFontFont collection.

Seven years in the making, the striking and classic letterforms beautifully matured into a flexible and versatile typeface containing eight harmonized weights and an extensive character set. Additional language support including Greek and Cyrillic  are also included. The top climber in the popularity font stakes, FF Sero has indeed proven to be every bit worth the while.

ÜberFontFont FF QType

Based on a square, FF QType is the latest rising star of our library – our so-called ÜberFontFont for the past quarter.

Traversing the somewhat tricky balance between pure geometry and legibility, FF QType is the brainchild of Achaz Reuss. It contains a vast 20 styles comprising of five subfamilies (Compressed, Condensed, Semi Extended, Extended and Square) each with five weights.

Following firm rules, it is geometric yet optically balanced; the horizontals are thinner than the verticals. The E and C terminals are at angle giving the typeface a lively, more playful character.

ÜberFontFont FF Zine

Last year we began a regular series on ÜberFontFonts, the rising stars of our library, that have been in demand the most during the previous quarter.

The last three months of 2012 were full to bursting with another release, a brand new podcast and our first ever newsletter. Topping the typographic charts the last quarter was Ole Schäfer’s FF Zine – a dedicated display system offering multiple “atmospheres”.

ÜberFontFonts

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.

ÜberFontFonts Q3 2012

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.

Catch up on our ÜberFontFonts from the first and second quarter of 2012.
