FF Mister K Dingbats are the latest offspring of the Mister K family. It started with Finnish illustrator Oili Kokkonen creating hilarious cartoon characters just using letter forms of the Regular. Soon after, the design of almost 600 pictograms was on its way. All of them – from rabbit to football and Eiffel tower – are based on parts of FF Mister K Regular with which they make a perfect match.
FF Mister K Dingbats are grouped according to topics. In the glyph window of Indesign and Illustrator all 596 of them are arranged in the alphabetical order of the following 10 topics: animals & plants; cities & countries’ flags; dingbats; food & dishes; household & garden; leasure, sports & vacation; office, technics & work; people; transport; weather.
