I am trying to track down any contact information for the type designer Jörg Hunziger, who worked with Adrian Frutiger in his paris studio (for some research for an exhibition). If anyone knows anything I will be more than happy.

Thank you!


I would be glad to have your opinion concerning the Neue Frutiger 1450 released by Monotype. I've also seen that they have published an article : "DIN 1450 – the German standard on legibility of texts" which could be seen as a marketing argument to justify, and sell this 1450 serie. (Maybe I'm wrong?).

I've seen some tough feedbacks on Twitter today by some weel known and hi-skilled type designers :

I recently came across a book, c. 1990, typeset in A. Frutiger's Iridium (Linotronic 500), and realized what a beautiful typeface Iridium is. Like a happier Walbaum, a more humane Bodoni, a better-crafted New Caledonia...

As the Linotype specimen sheet, as always, isn't too helpful -- has anyone has ever used the digital version, or seen a book typeset in it?

thanks in advance!

Hi there,

Hopefully someone can spot this one.

I think that the distinctive features are the leg of the 'R', and the slightly tapered/wedge shaped ends of the 'S'.

Dear all,
I'm looking for the typeface Adrian Frutiger designed in the '70 for the Centre George Pompidou.
Do you knows any digital version (or something else very similar)?

Helvetica, Frutiger, Futura and Garamond Typefaces Included with CorelDRAW for the First Time

WOBURN, Mass., Jun 01, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, has announced that fonts from its Helvetica(R), Frutiger(R), Futura(R) and Garamond typeface families are shipping with CorelDRAW(R) Graphics Suite X5, the newest professional graphics applications suite from Corel Corp. Comprising 32 fonts from the Linotype(R) collection, the designs have also marked their debut in any CorelDRAW product.

I'm working on a booklet, and was wondering if these two typefaces, Frutiger (sans serif) and Caecilia (slab serif) would work well together. Frutiger would be used in headings/subheads, while Caecilia would be applied to body text.

Anyone have experience with these two typefaces?

Hi guys,

I'm doing a project for the university wich consists in making a book about "Adrian Frutiger" and how he focusses on type legibility over any thing. So, I explain in it how he looked at the typography, how It must be done and why some ones are more readables than other ones (as for example, why Avenir is better for reading than Futura, as its like a re-design of it).

So, the problem is that I'm getting stucked getting HQ photos of Frutiger types to put in the book, as Internet has not a lot of images from he / his types. Also I need them in HQ cause I'm making a 20x20 book, so the resolution have to be bigger and also have a good ppp, not 72 from screen wich is not enough...

Does anybody know a serious alternative to the typeface FF Kievit? A double storey g is at least desired.
