Exclusive Discount on FF Tundra for ATypI Members
Posted by Ivo Gabrowitsch on Sep 21, 2011
Ludwig Übele’s award-winning design, FF Tundra, is a narrow serif typeface with stressed forms and soft contours. The idea evolved from investigating how a narrow typeface should look for optimal readability. To avoid a fence-effect, FF Tundra emphasizes the horizontal line. Ludwig Übele combined strong serifs, flat shoulders and open but heavy endings with a moderate contrast to achieve a balanced, legible typeface with a certain softness and humanity. While FF Tundra was designed for continuous text, it is also suitable for magazines and headlines (especially the extraordinary Extra Light weight), not to mention how well it works in newspapers as well. The family consists of six weights from Extra Light to Bold, each with Italics and Small Caps and many OpenType layout features. FF Tundra is a recipient of a Certificate of Excellence in Type Design at the 2011 TDC2 competition.
