Background

The initial work on Kievit occurred in 1995 as part of a school project and was finished several years later for a corporate client of Method Inc., a design firm in San Francisco. The openness of the characters and their proportions makes it an ideal typeface for use in small print. The clarity of classic sans serif faces (Frutiger and Univers) and the humanistic characteristics of old styles (Garamond and Granjon) were the inspiration for this contemporary design that is equally at home in a headline or a body of text. The FF Kievit family includes nine weights, true italics, old style figures and small caps “ everything necessary for even the most demanding typography.
