Dutch type designer Albert-Jan Pool created this sans FontFont between 1995 and 2009.
The family has 20 weights, ranging from Light to Black in Condensed and Medium (including italics) and is ideally suited for advertising and packaging, editorial and publishing, logo, branding and creative industries, poster and billboards, small text, wayfinding and signage as well as web and screen design.
FF DIN provides advanced typographical support with features such as case-sensitive forms, fractions, super- and subscript characters, and stylistic alternates.
It comes with a complete range of figure set options – oldstyle and lining figures, each in tabular and proportional widths.
As well as Latin-based languages, the typeface family also partly supports the Cyrillic and Greek writing systems.
In 2011, FF DIN was added to the MoMA Architecture and Design Collection in New York.
