FF Sheriff is a strong, economically-fit typeface with crisp shapes. Its unusual details make it suitable for use as a display type, while its low contrast and simple forms allow it to hold up well in text. The face’s designer is Peter Verheul, a typographer and type designer based in The Hague. Formally, FF Sheriff is a somewhat stiff Egyptian, or slab serif face, which means it has heavy, rectangular serifs. Work began on the typeface in 1989 when it was still called Bullet; A year later the typeface was given the name Sheriff. It was a deliberate choice not to call the italicized version of FF Sheriff italic, but Italian. While unconventional, Verheul’s typeface proves its practical utility under the most extreme conditions. FF Sheriff is a complete family suited to complex typographic work. Small caps are available in all weights via OpenType.
