FF Marselis crossbreeds geometric and humanistic forms, creating a freshly dynamic sans serif family. The family includes four weights – Light, Regular, Bold and Black. Each weight has a companion italic.

FF Marselis In-Use: Brussels Airport
FF Marselis is the selected corporate typeface for Brussels Airport. Its warm, soft and curvy features are a radical departure from the neutral, matter-of-factly or more technical-looking alphabets usually found in airports. The typeface works very well from gigantic display sizes, where the curved diagonals and typical teardrop-shaped counters define its personality, down to the smallest body text. FF Marselis is used in the logo as well. Designed by Megaluna, the branding and design leg of multidisciplinary agency The Factory Brussels, the new identity of Brussels Airport is striking, and beautifully illustrates the versatility of FF Marselis. It also makes a strong case for corporate branding, specifically for such a large entity, to look less “corporate”.
