Font Designer – Evert Bloemsma
FF Balance (1993), FF Cocon (1998/2001), FF Avance (2000), FF Legato (2004). All of Evert’s work was concerned with finding new answers to the old challenges of reading under various conditions, in different media. FF Legato has already been complimented not only as his most mature design to date, but also as a radical new way of designing the white space, paying as much attention to counter shapes as to the black marks on the page. In his prime and at the height of his profession, Evert died suddenly at his home in Arnhem, Netherlands.
