When Christian Schwartz and Erik Spiekermann were working on the design for FF Meta Serif, they also had plans to design FF Unit Slab – either at the same time, or right after FF Meta Serif would be released. They figured that, as FF Meta and FF Unit have so much in common, it would be smart to make two serif families that could be used together as well, along with either of the sans serifs. FF Meta, which has more organic details, was going to be the more traditional serif text face. FF Unit seemed like it would adapt well to being a clean and contemporary slab serif, especially since the i and I in the sans already showed them what the serifs would look like. Christian Schwartz worked together with Kris Sowersby to rough out complete ranges of test-words for both families at the same time, and FF Unit Slab sat half-finished while FF Meta Serif was completed.
