|Hello from FontFont! Click here, if you can’t quite see what our newsletter says.|
|Our founder Erik Spiekermann is often the subject of interviews, yet the tables were turned when he recently met up with Paul McNeil and Hamish Muir to interview them about their newest typeface FF ThreeSix. In our inaugural Talking Types podcast, they discuss bending the rules, geometric typefaces and the relationship between visual and transmitted language.|
|We are delighted to send 50 readers a special edition FF ThreeSix poster (A1 and unfolded), free of charge. Just send an email to email@example.com with your name and mailing address. (The first 50 people to respond will receive a poster.)|
Nearly two decades after its first release,
FF Meta family
has grown to become one of our largest and most popular super families. Never the sort to rest on his laurels,
decided it was time to breathe new life into
FF Meta Correspondence,
the younger sister to FF Meta. We are delighted to bring you a new and improved FF Meta Correspondence. Simplified and robust forms aplenty, a whole host of arrows, icons and office dingbats and less contrast, the new FF Meta Correspondence is ideal for use as webfont or within the mobile environment.
Read about the changes in full.

Did you know that numbers come in two different formats?
Most FontFonts are optimized for use in body text and contain OSF as the default. So, how can you access LF? If you have text set in all caps, all you need to do is use an Open-Type enabled programme (e.g. InDesign or Illustrator), click on the All-Caps button and hey presto, your numbers are transformed into LF. Not only that, but in OpenType and Pro FontFonts, thanks to the nifty ‘Case-sensitive forms’ OpenType Feature the correct figure set is chosen and the punctuation is also automatically better aligned. Want to know more about numerals? Head to Ivo’s article on The FontFeed.
