FF Ernestine and Directors Gothic

by RobBootle


I love this series, it’s so eye opening. In this case FF Ernestine is set off perfectly by Director’s Gothic. It looks so strong!

Today we look at something a little less conventional: Nina Stössinger’sFF Ernestine paired with Neil Summerour’s redrawing of the Lettering Inc. series, Directors Gothic.

FF Ernestine’s delicate finish and casual, wide stance are accentuated by Directors Gothic’s plain (and compact) nature. The American sans captures a classic ad-lettering style, with tightly controlled strokes, and a subtle human touch. The face comes in an astonishing 90 styles, each of the five sets growing incrementally wider, by the numbers.

That’s it. Great Pairs continues here Wednesday.
