FF Meta Serif is the companion serif to Erik Spiekermann’s influential FF Meta typeface. Spiekermann enlisted the help of type designers Christian Schwartz and Kris Sowersby to develop FF Meta Serif over the course of three years. It was released by FontFont in 2007. In my opinion, the sans-serif version of FF Meta seems to have fallen out of fashion to some extent (it seems like a very 90s font), however, its serif counterpart is used all over the web. FF Meta Serif is available in six weights—light, book, medium, bold, extrabold and black—each with corresponding italics.
Based on font usage data on Typewolf, as well as site submissions designers have been sending me lately, these are the 10 fonts that I predict will be hot in 2019. When you subscribe to my weekly type roundup newsletter, I’ll send you a free PDF with a list of my predictions.
