FS Industrie is an adaptive type system designed around five different widths and seven different weights, creating a total of 70 different variants (including italics). Such an ambitious typeface needed a similarly ambitious specimen to do it justice.
Designed by UK/Canada-based design studio and long term collaborator Believe in®, the specimens use variable data throughout. Over 400 creative professionals answered the ‘Future of Work’ survey and the data collected has been used within the specimen.
Each specimen has a limited edition letterpress print by one of ten global design studios slotted into the front cover.
The cover is laser cut spelling out 'FS Industrie' via apertures using the ‘Punched Card’ alphabet system. It is printed with white ink on Amethyst Colorplan, and the text section is digitally printed on Mohawk Ultrafine Eggshell. G F Smith supplied all the paper used throughout.
**Each specimen comes with a free download of FS Industrie Regular Standard** (1 user studio licence).
