FF Beowolf & FF BeoSans

FF Beowolf & FF BeoSans by Erik van Blokland, Just van Rossum

Beowolf began as randomfont, a face whose contours changed at random with the aid of PostScript hacks. Seen together here with its serifless companion BeoSans, the two allow the designer to select the desired level of distortion to the glyph outlines. Make sure contextual alternates are turned on via the OpenType panel in order to experience the face at its full technical potential. FF Beowolf is part of the MoMA’s permanent collection of digital types within its Architecture and Design Collection.
