The mets family features a serif and a sans serif, officially called ff meta sans and ff meta serif. The sans was designed by Spiekerman in the 90’s. Meta is a very popular and well known sans serif face, small intricate make it a very interesting face.

After much love for the sans, he attempted the serif.

3 years and help from Christian Schwartz and Kris Sowersby he accomplished the goal of a serif counterpart.

The 2 are made to compliment each other. One could easily use the 2 face at the same size in the same line without problem.

This write up is really half assed and not giving meta the praise it truly deserves.
