Award-winning: the extended family FF Tisa and FF Tisa Sans

Slovenian typeface designer Mitja Miklavčič created the slab serif FF Tisa as a contemporary magazine font. FF Tisa became extremely popular as a web font. He later designed FF Tisa Sans, which experienced a great deal of success in corporate communications and signalization systems.

Both fonts have eight weights, from Thin to Black, each with a matching genuine italic, as well as numerous small caps, character sets, ligatures and Cyrillic characters. FF Tisa and FF Tisa Sans match perfectly, but also have a high degree of recognition value on their own. The fonts are ideal for multimedia projects. The TDC recognized this and honored FF Tisa at the TDC2 in 2007. FF Tisa Sans also won a prize: the CommArts Award in 2013.
