Avenir™ Next

Adrian Frutiger is considered one of the most important typeface artists of the 20th century. Born in Switzerland in 1928, he trained in the craft of typesetting at a young age. His outstanding diploma thesis entitled "The Development of the Latin Alphabet" included eight xylographs and marked the beginning of Frutiger’s international career as a typeface designer.

Frutiger has been the creator of such internationally renowned typefaces as Avenir, Linotype Centennial™, Frutiger™, Icone™, Meridien™ and Univers™. In his over 40 years of typeface experience, Frutiger took major influence on the development of type design for hot metal, phototypesetting and digital typography as well.

Numerous prizes distinguish his pioneering work in the fi elds of typography and the graphic arts.
