I wonder why FF Clan was chosen over Siri here. Maybe Siri Black was not bold enough?

  1. I wonder why FF Clan was chosen over Siri here. Maybe Siri Black was not bold enough?

    As far as I know, FF Clan is RBMA’s corporate typeface, but not Red Bull’s in general.

    Red Bull’s corporate face is still Futura Condensed:
    Siri is used for the activities and FF Clan for the Radio Academy.

  3. Thank you for shedding light on this question, Ivo and Erik! I see that also uses yet another contemporary grotesque, FS Blake.

  4. Different Red Bull projects have different identities. The Red Bull Music Academy’s identity uses FF Clan. That is why the Radio uses it too.

    Siri was originally only used for Red Bull Media House editorial product, it was used for a greater number of websites in that ecosystem later on.

    Red Bull (not to be mistaken with Red Bull Media House) uses Futura and Garamond as corporate typefaces. FS Blake was used on the web to introduce a fresher look & feel.

    As to your question who designed the RBMA Radio Berlin posters: David Eckes.

  5. Sven, thank you for the information, much appreciated!
