The Fantastic Four: FF Pitu, FF Cube, FF Tisa, and FF Nuvo
The latest FontFont release introduces four brand new typefaces to our house foundry. Read about them all in this week’s upcoming email newsletter and get a deeper look in the following PDFs created by the type designers themselves.
FF Pitu’s most characteristic features are probably the pronounced stroke modulation and blade-shaped sharp stroke endings, which are slightly softened by generous calligraphic loops with “foxtail” terminals.
FF Tisa has has a tone that suits the casual fare of magazines and advertising as well as more the serious content of newspapers and annual reports. It earned the Type Directors Club’s highest honor: a “Certificate of Excellence in Type Design”.
FF Nuvo’s soft, calligraphic touch, small caps, multiple figure sets, and italics make it a useful family for editorial, advertising and packaging. Its alternate glyphs add typographic versatility.
