In 1990, FontFont followed its launch with FF Scala, a serif typeface which paid homage to traditional serifs, but offered something refreshingly new, a text face for a new era. Twenty years later, FF Yoga takes the same big step for this generation, offering a soulful, contemporary alternative to the overused classics.
The FF Yoga family is a type system by Xavier Dupré conceived for newspapers and magazines thanks to its strong personality and good legibility, though it will most certainly print well in numerous other environments. FF Yoga, with its sturdy serifs is a good choice for body text, but it also serves as an original headline face with its subtly chiseled counters. The face mixes the dynamic tension of angular cuts with the balanced rhythm and elegant curves of Garalde typefaces. FF Yoga Sans is a contemporary alternative to Gill Sans and a sober companion to the serif FF Yoga.
The family was made to work together, sharing the same proportions, x-height, and relative weight. The design also has much in common with Dupré’s other recent typeface, FF Masala, which could be used to deliver more informal content alongside FF Yoga.
FF Yoga OT and Pro fonts come with standard ligatures, small caps, case-sensitive forms, lining and oldstyle figures in tabular and proportional widths, and arbitrary fractions. FF Yoga Pro fonts add support for Central/Eastern European languages like Polish, Czech, Hungarian, and Turkish. The fonts are also available in both Offc format for Office® users and Web format for webdesigners.
