Font designer Lukasz Dziedzic created FF Eggo when a friend opening a grocery store asked him for a logo. The font was initially created so that his friend could make “milk” and “bread” signs for his grocery store, but the publication designer in Lukasz wanted Eggo to be very flexible. Most script fonts only work with lowercase, when capital letters are used only at the beginning of words. Lukasz wanted his uppercase letters to also work in all-caps settings. So he chose a plain, dynamic style, quite upright model. The uppercase in Eggo works on its own, but it also mixes well with the lowercase, which is more classically calligraphic. The thin style looks like it’s written with a pen or thin marker, while the bolder ones could be done with a brush or a marker. In the end Lukasz created 10 styles for Eggo. As he says: “…five weights which you can easily mix for the right flavor: the upright styles which are a bit more casual, and the italics, which are a bit more classic. And the uppercase which works rather well in all-caps but also mixes well with the lowercase.”
