Francker, born in 1972 in Denmark, was fascinated even as a child by the numerals and letters he saw on signs and in newspapers. But he decided to become an engineer, working on developments in the field of mechanics and preparing technical blueprints. He continued to paint and draw in his spare time, however, gaining experience in design in both his private and professional lives.
Without ever actually studying at a design school, Francker eventually encountered typeface design software for the first time at the beginning of the new millennium. Fascinated by the idea of being able to produce his own typeface, he got down to work. His insights into mathematics have proved to be particularly useful as they help him create effects that appear consistent even in different situations. Of course, you need more than an understanding of mathematics if you want to make a typeface but Francker does point out that architects, engineers and others like them who are used to working with drawings can contribute many innovative and interesting ideas to font design because they can see things from a new perspective.

Francker Selections in Open Type Pro format for just 39* EUR/USD eachYou can now acquire the basic sets of the amiable square sans Francker designed by Anders Francker at an unbelievable giveaway price: Each of our Francker Selections contains six styles (Selection 1 with Extra Light, Light and Semibold, each with the corresponding Condensed variant, Selection 2 with Regular, Medium, and Bold, each with the corresponding Condensed variant). Both selections will be available for just 39* USD/EUR each for one week only. This represents 312 USD/EUR or 90% off the normal price (offer available to February 26, 2015).
Forms reduced to the essentials accentuate the industrial feel of Francker, a font in which the superellipse is the underlying design element. At the same time, the emphasis on the curve offsets the potential rigidity of the concept, providing Francker with a soft, humane character. You can use the unique appeal of the readily legible Francker, for example, to create magazine designs, signage and logos.

Anders Francker: “These are my favorite fonts …”It is very difficult to choose a few favourite fonts among thousands of fonts available on the market – there are really many good candidates – so I tried to ask myself the question: “If you could only have six font families installed on your computer, besides your own Francker family, of course, and you were limited to use these for everything that you write in the future, from headlines to body text, which ones should that be?” After some thinking I came to the conclusion that I would need two traditional sans-serif fonts, two a little more modern looking and squarish sans-serif fonts and finally two serif fonts – and these are the ones that I decided on:
