Background

Carrois Apostrophe focuses on language extension and the development of corporate type. The studio was founded in 1975 by Ralph Carrois. The typeface for Suzuki was one of Ralph’s early projects, and he has since designed typefaces for TYPO3, the Neue National Galerie, and the Museo de Art de Ponce, among many others. In cooperation with Erik Spiekermann, Carrois Apostrophe has realized projects for Cisco, the German television broadcaster ZDF, designed Fira for Mozilla, and FF Real which was released by Fontshop. The studio is currently working on new designs and smart plugins for the font editor Glyphs.

Designed to integrate with the character of the Mozilla FirefoxOS, the Fira typefaces also aim to cover the legibility needs for a large range of handsets varying in screen quality and rendering.

The Fira font family comes in 3 widths, all accompanied by italic styles. The package also includes a Mono Spaced variant.

This project is led by Carrois, a type foundry based in Berlin. To contribute, see github.com/mozilla/Fira
