FR Hopper type family

The FR Hopper type family is the biggest release of Faberfonts Foundry since its opening. The project started as a quest for cool and neutral thin sans capital forms and proportions more than a year ago. Till then lots of things have changed and have been added and the project has grown into a project as complex and prolonged as nothing else before here in the studio of Faberfonts.

The FR Hopper type family is a sans based on geometric forms, still having a friendly personality. It is intended for mid-length texts, captions, titles and almost any other occasional use - posters, flyers and even for web sites.

The FR Hopper type family comes with 7 weights, 12 styles with 836 glyphs - that means 10,032 glyphs ready to use for your projects - and many advanced OT-features such as small caps, discretionary ligatures, alternate characters, fractions, arrows, ornaments and more in all twelve styles.

It supports Extended Latin-A and Latin-B character sets and more than 100 languages. Italics are based on carefully slanted roman versions but come with many cursive characters drawn from the ground up. It provides enough of a difference to the italics to stand out successfully from the romans - or attract by their own charm.

All the styles are carefully hand-kerned.
