FF Karbid

An energetic superfamily inspired by German storefront lettering from the 1930s.
It was German storefront lettering from the 1930s that inspired FF Karbid, and you can see the peculiarities of this in the Display version. Using this as a starting point, designer Verena Gerlach then distilled the ideas into a family of well-behaved but energetic text faces.

In 2011, the typeface has been refurbished and has now ten basic styles plus Text, Slab and Display versions. FF Karbid Text reveals a reduced, more neutral design while FF Karbid Slab is a completely new companion. All families contain Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, Black and their Italics. Many alternate characters have been added, for example low- and high-waist uppercase letter versions in FF Karbid, FF Karbid Text and FF Karbid Slab; single-storey a and g as well as bullets and arrows.
