  • In 1989, Martin Majoor designed a groundbreaking serif typeface for the Vredenburg Music Center in Utrecht. In 1991, FontFont released the face as FF Scala. It was the FontFont label’s first serious text face, equipped with oldstyle figures and small caps, features that were lacking in digital fonts at the time. With a complete four-style family and two Condensed weights, FF Scala continues to be a favorite and its spare but readable style is prized by contemporary book designers. The family is crowned by FF Scala Jewel, a set of decorative titling companions.
