More About FiFFteen

FiFFteen logo

FSI, FontShop International is staging an exhibition to celebrate 15 years of its FontFont type library and the relationships and inspirations which have made it possible. The exhibition will also feature FUSE, a seminal publication on experimental typography published by FSI between the years 1991 and 2000 which was instigated and edited by London designer Neville Brody.>

Both FontFont typefaces and FUSE have won world-wide recognition as major innovative forces in contempory typography and collected many prizes over the years. Combining old and new media to create a colourful mix of images and sound, the exhibition illustrates the methods, technologies and inspiration behind the fonts.

“FiFFteen” reveals some of the tricks of the type trade and shows how type is used in ways never imagined by its creators.

Currently over 3000 fonts and growing, FontFonts have had a profound influence on type design since their debut in 1990 with classics like FF Meta, FF Scala, FF DIN, FF Blur, FF Trixie etc.
