FF Super Grotesk draws from a 1930s design by Arno Drescher, easily the most popular sans serif in use in East Germany – the GDR’s equivalent of the then unavailable Futura. Today, the face is found only in period specimen books and early East German ephemera. Both served as sources for FF Super Grotesk’s earliest sketches. Its original glyph coverage was increased with special symbols and characters, alternatives for minuscule ‘a’ and ‘g’, and ranging figures.
