Background

It was a great temptation and challenge to design FF Mister K, a typeface inspired by manuscripts of Franz Kafka and named after main characters of the novels ?Das Schlo?” and ?Der Prozess?. Kafka?s manuscripts reveal a unique handwriting style with strong calligraphic features. Looking closer, glyph shapes derived from the Latin as well as the German script popular in Austro-Hungary at the beginning of the 20th century can be distinguished in different texts. In designing the typeface, a balance had to be found between the Kafka?s strong and partly eccentric letterforms and new forms to enable a steady typographic flow. While FF Mister K is quite true to the original handwriting, FF Mister K Informal lessens K?s eccentricity in favour of a friendly, readable appearance.
FF Mister K Informal received a TDC Certificate of Excellence in Typeface Design in 2012.
