Born under the watchful stares of the Berlin art & design scene, Fip was designed live in a gallery for the exhibition “(Font) In Progress:”.
The release was scheduled to coincide with the show’s closing party – after one month of work. However, in the last days of the project, instead of finalizing the design and producing font files, the scope of the project was greatly expanded to include more styles, extra OpenType features, and the Cyrillic script.
Fast forward a couple years and finally Fip is released! It evolved into a massive superfamily of 64 monospaced fonts that features a wide range of different styles. The diversity of these fonts offers unique opportunities for many different tastes and projects.

The Style

There are several noticeable features that make Fip immediately recognizable:

Fip's Features

More of Fip's Features

 

Fip vs Fip Rounded
The ‘original’ version of Fip is somewhat decorative with various cuts and notches on serifs, corners, and terminals. The Rounded version features not just rounded corners – it has a more linear and simplified design than the original.

Fip Sans
Sliced & severed serifs secures Sans’ style. Astute typographers will notice how the lack of seriffed ornamentation drastically alters the feel of the design. Between harshly removing the serifs and delicately adjusting select forms & proportions, Fip Sans has a clear and streamlined presence for when less is more.

Fip Rough
Harking back to the good ol’ days, the rough versions of Fip are reminiscent of splotchy typewriters and cheap printing. These fonts give a warm, organic feel for when straight lines and sharp vectors are just toooo perfect. Rough versions come complimentary (yes FREE!) alongside every purchase of the un-rough fonts.

Rough for the web
Special web-optimized versions are included in the Web font packages. The normal OTF versions of the Rough fonts are quite large (700-800kb), and most of the details get lost in the pixels. So the optimized version are more simple and the files weigh in around 85-90kb each (105-110kb with Cyrillic included).

The aptly-named blobfish is now in danger of being wiped out. The bloated bottom dweller, which can grow up to 12 inches, lives at depths of up to 900m making it rarely seen by humans. But thanks to increasing fishing of the seas Down Under, the fish is being dragged up with other catches. Despite being inedible, the blob-fish unluckily lives at the same depths as other more appetizing ocean organisms, including crab and lobster.

License FAQ

Desktop:

Commercial: This is for general use for most (offline) typesetting. The fonts may be used for just about any print application, including branding, logos, magazines, posters, etc.

Personal: This license is only for individuals who are using the fonts for their own private, non-commercial use. This generally means personal projects for school or home use with no direct or indirect connection to making money. This license is explicitly excluding any use on published materials, branding for business, or for anything with commercial intent.

Student: This discount is valid for current, full time students of any level. The student license remains valid even after graduation, and is allowed for commercial work, so you don’t need to worry about re-licensing later.

 

Web:

Our web fonts are distributed as WOFF, WOFF2, & EOT formats. They are licensed per domain and based on the traffic your website receives at the time of licensing. So, if you start out smaller then grow, there’s no need to update your license later. It’s also a one time fee so there are no annual or reoccurring costs.

< 100K pageviews/month: For websites with under 100,000 pageviews per month.

< 1M pageviews/month: For websites with 100,000 to 1 million pageviews per month.

< 10M pageviews/month: For websites with 1 to 10 million pageviews per month.

> 10M pageviews/month: For websites with more than 10 million pageviews per month.

 

Embedding:

App: This license is for embedding fonts into mobile or desktop applications. The license is valid on a per major version of your app. Meaning, the fonts are always allowed on smaller free updates to your app, but for more substantial paid updates an additional license must be purchased.

ePub: This license covers most digital publishing formats including EPUB, AZW, IBA, PDF, and others. The fonts are licensed on a per-title usage, but they may be used on any number of different file formats for the same title (meaning you can produce EPUB & PDF versions of the same title with the same license). Per-title means one specific book or one issue of a magazine, not a series. Additional titles can be purchased later for only a bit extra.

Additional explanations can be found on our FAQ page.
