Dialogue between Frutiger & Kobayashi
Adrian Frutiger: Right from the beginning, I was convinced that Avenir® is the better Futura®. Akira Kobayashi: I share your opinion, but some weights have been missing to make Avenir an all-purpose typeface. Adrian Frutiger: You mean the condensed weights? Akira Kobayashi: Yes, with this extension I’m sure Avenir will then be able to cut its own path. Adrian Frutiger: Then we should get to work putting Avenir onto that path ... Akira Kobayashi: Yes.
