FF Meta font

FF Meta™ was designed in 1991-93 by Eric Spiekermann based on the typeface comissioned by the German Post Office (Bundespost) in 1984 as an exclusive corporate font. However the face was not accepted by the customer and the whole project was cancelled. In 1989 its artwork was digitized and the new face of 3 styles was created by Just van Rossum. It was named FF Meta after Meta Studio in which the new typeface was used exclusively. Then FontShop started to distribute FF Meta and some extra weights together with the corresponding italics and small caps were added by Luc(as) de Groot. The face is very popular, especially in the US where it has been used for setting of ID magazine, the leading publication for industrial and communication design. Meta has been hailed as "the typeface for the nineties". Young designers seem to appreciate its rugged charm, which owes a lot to the detailed requirements of small type on bad paper. Cyrillic versions were developed for ParaType in 2001 by Tagir Safayev and Olga Chayeva.
