FS Meridian is our brand new sans serif designed by Kristína Jandová with production by myself and creative direction from Phil Garnham. It has a wide geometric, mono-liner appearance with humanistic elements and extended forms.

Of note are several quirky individual touches like the capital ‘Q’ which has three alternative options in addition to the standard character, the loopy closed terminals, expressive pound sign, chiselled angle cut ‘t’, and large ‘i’ dots. The lowercase ‘y’ has a very distinctive tail with a wide baseline and the capital ‘G’ has a deep cut ink trap. The numerals have a dynamic feel, especially the angular ‘1’ and the ‘4’ with an exaggerated high stem and diagonal.

FS Meridian was chosen by furniture brand MADE.COM to use as their Brandfont before it was even launched. Read more about that in this article. They paired it with FS Neruda but it would also look great with FS Benjamin, FS Brabo, FS Elliot and FS Siena.

FS Meridian is available to trial and buy now.
