All around talent Hans Reichel worked not only as a graphic designer, but also as a musician and instrument maker. He also invented the so-called Daxophone, after which he named his typeface FF Dax.
With this family, Reichel designed a combination of the clear forms of a structured grotesque and a humanist touch.
Thanks to FF Dax, FF Dax Compact and FF Daxline, three new family members have been created that are optimized for specific areas of application.
For example, FF Dax is particularly well-suited to headlines, logos or high-volume typesetting. FF Dax is available in six weights with three widths, Condensed, Normal and Wide.
FF Dax Compact, on the other hand, is a very narrow typeface, intended for use on flyers and newspaper or magazine headlines.
FF Daxline has somewhat broader letters and less contrast in the weights. It is especially well-suited for small print, and also has a narrow Thin style, in addition to the familiar six weights.
