Herr Frutiger, in 1989 when I was studying design at CCAC (hypnotized by the Univers family) I can honestly admit to remembering the day when Avenir came available. Like the legacy of young designers-to-be before me, we were elated. Since then, I've made numerous opportunities in actuating your typefaces. Timeless, precise, passionate detail and forethought, thank you for creating such an excellent feast of typographical delicacies from which to savor. On behalf of my staff and clients, -Mit tiefer Dankbarkeit. Wir wnschen, ihnen einen frhlichen 80. Geburtstag, und viele mehr zu kommen! — Jeffrey Hamilton Smith, USA

Dear Mr. Frutiger, We've never met, but I feel like I've shared in a special moment. You see I did the typesetting for your goblet which was awarded to you from SOTA.

Mr. Frutiger; Ever since I started working in the Financial Printing business 10 years ago, I've been involved in fonts one way or another. Time and time again clients repeatedly request the beautiful fonts that you created. On behalf of me and my company Command Financial Press 75 Varick Street NY NY 10013, here's wishing you a happy and healthy 80th birthday. — Timothy P. Baker, USA
Congratulations mr Frutiger! Though I used your Frutiger for the first book a designed 35 years ago, I only reccently 'discovered' Egyptienne F. I did two books last year with this font. To my opinion it is superb, no other egyptian can compete with its fine and robust 'archetypic' forms. I hope it will be made more complete one day. — Johannes Niemeijer, Netherlands
You, sir, have designed the best lowercase a's in the history of type. happy birthday. — brendan, united states

Happy 80th Birthday! I am a designer in Portland, Oregon and just wanted to pass on how your fonts have influenced some of my larger projects. When I worked at Nike as the US creative Director of Brand Design, we choose Avenir as our corporate font in 1996. Several years ago while working with Johnson & Johnson, I recommended Frutiger for the J&J Medical Institute. We were working on an environmental design package for the institute and Museum. I've used Serifa on numerous projects--Univers as well! I just want to say "Thank You" for your talent and persistence. Have a wonderful birthday month! — Valerie Taylor Smith, USA
dear mr. Frutiger, may I just say that the world of design would be a much smaller place if it wasn't for frutiger and univers. Happy birthday :) — shradha mohan, India
Bravo merci pour tout — pecau jean pierre, france
Your influence crosses the countries and the generations. Thank you for all your work and happy birthday — Raphal Bastide, France
Happy Birthday, Mr. Frutiger! I use your namesake font on a daily basis. What would life be without Frutiger? Thanks for your contribution to the world of design, and have a glorious day with those you love, doing things that bring you joy and peace. . . — Allen Griffith, United States
Ever since I set Monotype Univers at school I have always used that as my benchmark for sans-serif typefaces. Most of my work is now done digitally but having just bought an old Adana letterpress machine (and some typefaces including Univers 10pt Bold) I look forward to getting reacquainted with it. Thanks for your work. — John Stout, United Kingdom
I was a student in engineering when I visited a friends portfolio review. She was graduating in Visual Communications. She so inspired me, and it was her passion for Frutiger, the font she used on her resume that still sticks with me today. I use that font often because of that moment. I also love Univers and the chart containing all of the weights has always inspired me. Veil Gluck zum Geburstag! — Bob Hopfner, USA
For long time, san-serif latin typefaces in Japan had been only grotesque styles such as Helvetica. It was Frutiger typefaces that I saw at the station. Frutiger was (has been) used for displaying track numbers. It was different from the typefaces I had ever seen. I found that the name of the typefeces is Frutiger later and that it had been designed for sign system. I learned that typefaces should carefully be choiced dependent on their usage. Now I am not a designer. But, I am aware of typefeces in order to communicate with others better. I think typefaces is similar to air. Air is indispensable for us, but we can live without being aware of it. But, good air makes us comfortable. Typefaces is indispensable for our communication, but we can live without being aware of them. But, good typefeces and good typography make us comfortable. The beginning was meeting Frutiger typefaces. I can say that I learned form Mr. Frutiger. I celebrate your birthday with appreciation. — Keita Ushida, Japan
