About FF Clan
Since its release in 2006, FontFont customers have helped make FF Clan one of the most popular typefaces in our library. FF Clan is an extensive family from Warsaw’s Łukasz Dziedzic. A fresh take on the contemporary sans model, FF Clan is comprised of seven weights in six widths. Dziedzic’s experience in publication design is evident in these strong, readable types, which feature a large x-height, short descenders, and small caps for all weights. The thin weight is delicate but substantial, ideal for fashion and cosmetic campaigns. On the other end of the spectrum, the ultra weight makes a powerful statement in posters and dramatic headlines. No stranger to experimentation, the self-taught Dziedzic imbued FF Clan with a distinct personality that engages the reader while remaining truly legible.
Łukasz Dziedzic was born 1967 in Warsaw. Rather than to finish high school, he worked as a sound technician, actor, carpenter helper rebuilding 13th-century churches, singer/bass guitarist and software developer at the Polish patent office. During the first free Polish elections of 1989, he briefly worked as a newsboy for Gazeta Wyborcza, the newly-launched, first independent daily newspaper in the country. A year later, he joined the design department of Gazeta Wyborcza and spent seven years there, co-creating the layouts of the main newspaper and its weekly companion magazine, for which he drew his first typeface. He later worked for several other publishing houses in Warsaw, designing newspapers and magazines. At the same time, Łukasz drew over a dozen typeface families ranging from large Latin and Cyrillic text families to single display styles.
