About Frutiger® Next Paneuropean Complete Family Pack

Frutiger™ Next is Adrian Frutiger's and Linotype's completely new interpretation of the well known typeface Frutiger released in 2000. The family is available in two versions: OpenType, or traditional font formats (PostScript and TrueType). For these revised forms, the areas of application are almost limitless. Frutiger Next can be used for anything from office communications to multimedia to complex printed materials.

The OpenType Version
Here is a Frutiger" family with small caps, oldstyle figures, and other figure options in every font; Western, Central, and Eastern European glyph coverage is included as well! Adrian Frutiger's eponymous typeface has been used for decades, everywhere from airport signage to book text to corporate logos to the smallest web graphics. Now, customers may order Frutiger Next in OpenType format as well. The OpenType family has seven weights -- an Extra Light weight was created just for the OpenType release -- each in Regular, Italic, and Condensed variants-that's 21 fonts in all! Plus, the fonts include more robust character sets, thanks to their OpenType programming.

The Italics in the original version of Frutiger were based very closely on the Roman forms; in Frutiger Next, they have been re-designed to be true Italics.

The "Traditional" Version
A system of 18 weights, with priority being placed on retaining the aesthetic aspects of the original characters while optically adjusting the contrast between weights: PostScript and TrueType versions of Frutiger Next are also available for customers who do not use OpenType-savvy applications like the Adobe Creative Suite.
