FF Absara® font family

Designed by  Xavier Dupré in 2004
Xavier Dupré’s FF Absara is a work of French proportions, but its shapes take influence from the Dutch style: less polished, and more direct. Its casualness refers to humanist written forms. FF Absara’s rough cut makes it interesting at display sizes, but thanks to its generous x-height and firm serifs, FF Absara works equally well setting text. The typeface’s idiosyncratic italic creates a strong contrast with the roman. Both functional and expressive, FF Absara lends a humanistic touch to editorial or advertising work. FF Absara was selected by the TDC judges for a Certificate of Excellence in 2005. The style of the Renaissance Roman was also the inspiration for a sans serif companion, FF Absara Sans. Like FF Absara, this family includes a wide range of weights, and its forms strike a balance between the old and the new, resulting in a handsome and legible typeface well suited to many applications. FF Absara Headline and FF Absara Sans Headline were subsequently added, expanding the family’s ability to fill a separate range of settings in editorial design.
