Fontwerk’s latest addition to their library, Nice Superfamily is a complex type system with an enormous range of typographic possibilities. Thanks to its four optical sizes, it covers a wide range in terms of design and legibility: from texts in very small sizes to large, expressive billboard grabbing titles. In contrast to many historically oriented serif fonts, it has a fresh look with a slightly nostalgic flair.
Nice Superfamily has many faces: open, elegant, expressive, compact, robust—but never boring. She is as lively as possible in order to convey messages in a serious and credible way. Her name speaks for itself, she is friendly in appearance, charming in expression, and pleasant to use.
Drawing from its baroque ancestors, it takes only the most important essences: the expressiveness, the contrast between severity and warmth, the playfulness of the italics, the subtle quirkiness. By softening typical decorative elements such as sprawling curves, twisted drops or idiosyncratic serifs and carefully incorporating them into a modern framework, its designer Jan Fromm places its historical formal language in a contemporary context.
