Font designer Martin Marjoor was unsatisfied with the fonts available to him as a designer in the mid-1980s. This problem led him to design his own font. The result was Scala. The Dutchman’s font was the first actual typeface published by the newly established FontShop in 1991.
Over the years, the sans serif variant FF Scala Sans was added, and later the ornamental typeface FF Scala Jewel made it a super family.
The Renaissance Antiqua FF Scala, with its particularly striking serifs, recalls the stroke of a fountain pen. Well equipped with small caps, old-style figures, ligatures and a number of hand pictograms, the font forms the solid foundation of the family. The Regular and Bold styles have matching Italic and Condensed variations.
FF Scala Sans is the perfect sans serif companion, and is available in Light and Black, in addition to Regular and Bold.
FF Scala Jewel has four upper-case decorative fonts, which are reminiscent of various pieces of jewelry. Their shapes are legible even in the smaller font sizes and they round out the diverse options of the FF Scala family.
All fonts are perfectly co-ordinated, harmonize very well with each other and therefore open up countless design possibilities for your projects.
