I can't identify the font used throughout the whole Apple's Thirty years of Mac site.
It looks a lot like Frutiger, but it's not. It seems to be some kind of custom-made typeface.
Myriad. Some kind of light or ultra-light weight.
Apple had a custom Myriad made
More info on Apple Myriad http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typography_of_Apple_Inc. and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_typography#Myriad
It seems there is no legitimate Myriad Extra Light for purchase. Substitute extra light are found on a list at http://fontfeed.com/archives/extra-thin-ultra-light-fonts/
Thank you guys! It must be a custom made typeface then.
I checked it via “Inspect element” in Firefox and it’s “Myriad Set” specifically.
Adobe's most recent version of Myriad is Myriad Pro, which has some additional enhancements and character set extensions, but is not significantly changed in design.
Myriad Apple, a modification produced by Galápagos Design Group, incorporates minor spacing and weight differences from the standard varieties, and includes Apple-specific characters such as the company logo.
In 2006, Myriad Apple was superseded by Myriad Set, which contains extra ligatures and other minor changes.
Thank you again, inktrap!
