Now Available: Linotype Platinum Value Packs – November, 2007

New options make Linotype’s premium fonts more accessible

Bad Homburg, November 2007. Available immediately, the premium Linotype Platinum font families are now reorganized into smaller, more affordable Value Packs. Previously, the typeface families Linotype Univers®, Frutiger® Next, Linotype Syntax®, Sabon® Next, Compatil®, Optima® nova, Avenir® Next, and Palatino® nova were sold exclusively as complete families on CD. Now, the Platinum Value Packs are available for immediate download from the Linotype website, allowing you to order only the weights and styles that you need at more convenient prices.

The Platinum Collection of typefaces represents Linotype’s highest level of design quality. From the refined text face classics of Sabon and Palatino to the clarity and practicality of Frutiger and Univers, all of the classic families have been reworked and expanded making them technologically and aesthetically up to date. In addition to that comes the new and versatile type system of Compatil. The Platinum families have a wide range of weights and variations for all your typographic needs - often featuring small caps, multiple figures, and alternates. The typefaces have perfected forms, fine-tuned character fitting, and extensive hinting for improved screen rendering and printing quality.
