FF Dax is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Hans Reichel, published by FontFont library. The typeface is popular in advertising and in marketing. Other designs, Barmeno and Sari, more bulbous cousins of FF Dax with curvier ends, have also been designed by Reichel.

The UPS Sans typeface, used in most of United Parcel Service branding since 2005, is a modified version of FF Dax. W.M. Morrison, the British supermarket chain uses FF Dax on most in-store promotional material, hanging product location signs, and points of interest around the store - such as special offers and two-for-one deals.

In 2005 Hans Reichel reworked FF Dax into a cleaner, more mature text face called FF Daxline.


FF Dax is widely adopted in several advertising materials, it is also used as a branding font by a few organisations and companies.

The typeface was adopted in the United Kingdom by David Cameron in 2005 as part of the branding for his campaign for leadership of the Conservative Party. After Cameron was elected, the party was immediately rebranded in the style of the Cameron campaign, and Dax was used for a new version of the party logo and across all its subsequent advertising, leaflets and website, until being replaced by Lucida Sans in October 2006.

FF Dax is also used in the branding of the New Democratic Party of Canada, the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn of Switzerland and the Norwegian Progress Party.

FF Dax is also used by the New Scientist magazine as its main header text for their publications, banners and ads.

Banks in Canada (Bank of Montreal) and the Philippines (Bank of The Philippine Islands) use FF Dax for marketing and publications.

FF Dax is additionally used in the TV sitcom How I Met Your Mother for the title.

Air Malta adopted the typeface for their new logo.

Virgin Mobile also used the typeface for some parts of their logo.
