Spark: A Typeface for Creating Sparklines in Text Without Code

Spark is a typeface for creating sparklines in text. It uses OpenType’s contextual alternates and requires no Javascript, though it does require a modern-ish browser that can make use of OpenType features in text.

Spark data needs to be formatted as comma-separated values, with curly brackets at both ends of the set, e.g., {30,60,90}. You can also have numbers at the beginning and end of the set, which are useful for providing the start and end points, e.g., 123{30,60,90}456 – Spark has numerals built in.

Really neat!

FF Franziska is a typeface suited for long text: discreet, functional and modern, but with real personality. To give you lots of flexibility in your design and production, FF Franziska provides not only good legibility in the body text, but also interesting characteristics in larger point sizes.

Lovely typeface, with a lovely site covering its design process.
