FS Albert Narrow Features

FS Albert Narrow is a narrow version of FS Albert Pro, designed by Jason Smith. But, drawn from scratch, it’s more like a font in its own right, as Jason Smith explains. “The challenge in designing a narrow version of a typeface based on an existing design is not to make it to look squashed.

“There comes a point in condensing a font where it becomes broken. You can usually automatically squash something by 10% and it will still look OK. But by the time you’ve squashed it by 25% the type looks ugly and needs redrawing. So we drew it all manually in order to ensure the design integrity was kept while still fulfilling the need to save space.”


Slimmed-down it may be but it’s got just as much personality as its daddy, and with a wide range of weights available it’s capable of bringing warmth and welcome to text and headlines, no matter how small or large.

Greek and Cyrillic versions (including Cyrillic characters for Bulgarian) mean FS Albert Narrow can stretch out around the world as a corporate font for global brands, or as a fully-featured companion to FS Albert Pro.

Weights, Greek, Cyrillic

Many clients have discovered the benefit of adding FS Albert Narrow alongside FS Albert Pro. It’s crisp, clear and legible at all sizes, from text to headlines, saving space or making room for extra copy. It’s that economy with space that makes it ideal for small print and legal documents. In fact, FS Albert Narrow was originally developed for the legal documents of a global consumer health brand.
