As part of the release of FF Quixo we produced these gorgeous notebooks and additional dust jacket which doubles up as a specimen poster for the award winning typeface.
The moleskin size inspired notebook is made up of 32 pages with a luxury textured feel to it. Throughout both the notebook and poster four Pantone colours were used. If you fancy getting your hands on one of these we will be giving them out at TYPO San Francisco and TYPO Berlin!

About FF Quixo
“Quixo” is an onomatopoeic exaggeration. If you are a good listener, you will know that the word comes directly from the sound of dipping a brush into a bottle of ink. It is also the sound of that same bottle, dropping on the floor: “Quix-O!!”.
FF Quixo is a tool-based typeface family, based on the contrast of the pointed pen. Conceived from Frank Grießhammer’s graduation project at the Type and Media program at KABK Den Haag, the typeface is rooted in handwriting and explores the concept of increasing tool size in relation to weight. The visual influence of the tool is barely visible in the Regular weight, but more extreme in the Black one. The incorruptible result is a diverse spectrum of 12 styles (6 weights with Roman and Italic in each) suitable for compact and concise passages of text.
FF Quixo plays on various sides of creative type – headline and text, bold and fine. It is a typeface that can show a playful side without looking goofy and is equipped with all the features and considerations necessary to produce complex typography. It feels at home whenever a touch of personality, whim, and symbols are required, but also provides the necessary precision for more functional applications.
