TDC2 2007: FF Tisa

January 1st, 2007

In 2007, Mitja Miklavčič’s Tisa typeface was among the winning entries in the traditional Type Directors Club type design competition. The TDC is an international organization for all people who are devoted to excellence in typography, both in print and on screen.

FF Tisa

Slovenian designer Mitja Miklavčič drew FF Tisa to meet the technological and aesthetic requirements of modern magazine use. His primary goal was to develop a softer, more dynamic version of a nineteenth-century slab serif wood type. A large x-height and pronounced serifs make FF Tisa extremely legible in text sizes; its unique design details, including slightly exaggerated ink traps and a fairly upright italic, are evident in display applications.
