FF Profile unites classic forms into a contemporary face. The starting point is the broad-nibbed pen and the result is clear, uncluttered and attractive letterforms with a minimum of contrast. It is very legible in small sizes and yet an individualistic headline face. The subtle hint of serifs, the angled ends and the classical proportions, coupled with the ascenders that project beyond the uppercase, result in a cheerful, comfortable whole. The entire family uses space frugally. Even the heaviest weights of the family were drawn somewhat narrowly to achieve this. Martin Wenzel invested a great deal of time in perfecting the widths and the kerning tables. The first drawings of FF Profile date back to 1995, and many of them were done directly on screen. In the following four years the family has undergone many changes and the lettershapes have been continuously refined and re-drawn. The end result is a family of five weights: Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, and Black. FF Profile contains a wide range of special characters, expert characters, mathematical symbols and various sets of numerals. All special characters of FF Profile have been drawn with the same attention to detail as the standard character set. The font even contains four different ampersands.
