Tribute to Adrian Frutiger

On 10 September 2015, Swiss typeface designer Adrian Frutiger sadly passed away. Creator of some of the most used typefaces ever, such as Univers, Frutiger and Avenir, he influenced the direction of digital typography in the second half of the 20th century and into the 21st.

Design studio Heury & Heury have made a wonderful Tribute to Adrian Frutiger, developing this series of six posters that consists of Frutiger quotes and diverse compositions to pay homage.

Heury & Heury wanted to make this tribute because his fonts enriched them, and now, on Minimalissimo, we would like to share this with you because we also greatly admire his work, and Avenir is the typeface that we use in our new logo, our website and in our printed magazine, so this is also our tribute to him.

Adrian Frutiger described creating sans-serif types as his main life’s job. A job that could not have been done better.
