Adrian Frutiger was born on May 24, 1928 and is a very famous Swiss typographer who has created more than 60 fonts in his career. (Identifont, Fonts Designed by Adrian Frutiger) Some of his most famous fonts are: Frutiger, Meridien, the OCR series, Univers, and Serifa, to name a few. He and a couple of colleagues founded their own studio near Paris in order to design, create and distribute their font-work. His work with typography has landed him a few awards and honors; 1986, the Gutenberg Prize of the City of Mains (Germany); 1987, Medal of the Type Directors Club of New York; 1993, Officier de loordre des Arts et des Lettres (Paris); 1993, Grand Prix National des Arts Graphiques (France). (Wikipedia, Awards)

Combining his Univers font, along with influences from the font Gill Sans, he created ‘Roissy,’ which ended up being used at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, France. The company Linotype ended up renaming the font that he used to his last name – ‘Frutiger,’ and released it for the public to use in 1976. (Wikipedia, Work Summary) Frutiger attended college at the Zurich School of Arts and Crafts and was taught by two renowned professors, Alfred Willimann and Walter Kach. He then went on as a professor for ten years at the Ecole Estienne, and eight years at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs, in Paris. (Identifont, Adrian Frutiger)

A lot of his works are used in both metal and photocomposition systems. His most recent work was in 2008, when he helped create a redesigned version of his Meridien font, which Linotype then released on his 80th birthday as ‘Frutiger Serif.’ (Identifont, Adrian Frutiger)

The font that I have chosen for this research paper is called “Univers.” It was designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1954, and was published by Linotype in 1985. It was released right around the same time that Helvetica and Optima were being…...

The Proton logo in 1983 was a dark blue shield which encompassed a yellow crescent positioned below a yellow fourteen-pointed star, in reference to the Malaysian flag and coat of arms.[39] However, this emblem was only used for Proton cars which were sold domestically. Proton cars exported to other markets received different badge designs. In 2000, the new Proton logo was used on the Proton Waja which launched in that year.[39] It featured a stylized yellow tiger head on a green roundel embossed upon a dark blue shield, with the Proton name in yellow capital letters in Frutiger font. The standard text representation of the Proton name was also changed from the lowercase italic text "proton" to the uppercase "PROTON". All Proton cars manufactured after 2000 carried the new badge, both in the domestic and export markets.

At the Kunstgewerbeschule, Frutiger primarily concentrated on calligraphy — a craft favouring the nib and the brush, instead of drafting tools. ------------------------------------------------- Work summary[edit] Specimens of typefaces by Adrian Frutiger. An Illustration showing the typefaces Frutiger Serif and Frutiger Next in use. Charles Peignot, of the Paris foundry Deberny Et Peignot, recruited Frutiger based upon the quality of the illustrated essay Schrift / Écriture / Lettering: the development of European letter types carved in wood. Frutiger's wood-engraved illustrations of the essay demonstrated his skill, meticulousness, and knowledge of letterforms. At Deberny & Peignot foundry, Frutiger designed the typefaces "Président", "Méridien", and "Ondine". In the event, Charles Peignot set Frutiger to work upon converting extant typefaces for the new phototypesetting Linotype equipment. Adrian Frutiger's first commercial typeface was Président — a set of titling capital letters with small, bracketed serifs, released in 1954. A calligraphic, informal, script face, Ondine ("wave" in French), also was released in 1954. In 1955, Méridien, a......

...critical | A short take on the above: like other public information materials, posters need to have clarity and impact. If you want to produce posters for public display, keep the following points in mind: * Keep information short and to the point. * Don’t crowd your poster with information, and keep your text away from the edges. This will make your poster easier to read. * Keep text left-margin aligned; this will make it easier to read. * If you are using a laser printer, don’t use dark coloured paper. * Always set dark text against a light background; black on white is usually best. * Don’t use all upper case text, as this will make your poster more difficult to read. * Use a sans serif font, such as Frutiger or Arial, for all type on your posters. * If you are using pictures, avoid ‘clipart’. * Don’t put text over images, pictures or graphics of any kind. In this assignment you will submit your poster as a single sheet of A4, so the font size you use will need to be quite small. I suggest you use 12 for headings and 10 for text. BUT try this out for yourselves. IF you were producing a full size poster (which you will do in the third year as part of your dissertation) then it is important to put your poster up on a wall and see if it is clear from the other side of the room. If not, consider how it could be improved. Additional information and ideas go oogle on google For more information google poster design or some such......

...influential and notorious typefaces today. It not only gives the name of the designer and the year when it was first published, but also groups it into families and classes like serif, sans-serif, display, grotesque, didone or geometric, which helps to get a clearer picture. I found that a good start for research and googled many of the mentioned designers. I stopped at Erik Spiekermann (the type”face” behind Audi, Bosch, Sky TV, Nokia, …) Matthew Carter (internet/screen standard fonts Verdana/Tahoma, Georgia), Max Miedinger (Neue Haas Grotesk = Helvetica), Edward Johnston (ITC Johnston, P22 Underground for the London tube), Paul Renner (Futura), Tobias Frere-Jones (Gotham - Obama election campaign 2008, Asphalt Black), Adrian Frutiger (Linotype Didot, Univers, Frutiger, Avenir), Stanley Morison (Times). These are mainly type faces which serve in headlines as well as in the body copy. If chosen for the right reasons (style of typeface fitting style of article, text, ...) the quality of these fonts have a chance to deliver what the Craig Ward poster on top of this text asks typography to do – to be invisible – meaning to fit a purpose so perfect that it seems to belong to it as part of its nature. In most cases people should not talk about the type faces and graphic design, but the message it transports. I also researched some typographers, who became known mainly for their display typefaces: Luke Lucas (Lukano, Aeroplane, Sleaze, Inline Hell), Steve Buffoni (Nu Classic......

...BACC – Bangkok Art and Culture Centre The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre is the cutting edge mid-town contemporary art centre where artists come and unite. Started in 1995 by The Artists’ United Front of Thailand who propose the idea of a contemporary art centre for Thailand to dedicate to His Majesty the King Bhumipol Adulyadej. However, conflict between the artists and the governor prevent the project for going further due to the governor’s vision of wanting to turn the art centre into a shopping mall with the art centre being a minor part of it. It was not until the new elected Bangkok Governor; Mr.Apirak Kosayodhin approved the project in September of 2004 that the project restarted with budget of 509 million baht. In July of 2008 the projected was completed and the official opening in 2009. The style of Bangkok Art and Culture Centre is a combination of both modern and historic reference of Thai forms and shapes. Narrow and small windows are used as a remark of tradition Thai style windows but were adapted to create a modern look. A sloped slanted wall of the exterior looks simple and modern but was actually used by Thai architecture over the years. Thai roof and the form of Thai traditional dance positions inspired the curved profile of the interior. Feelings of open space are affected by the use of high ceilings and window panels. The building consists of 9 floors, with the main gallery beginning from the 5th floor. The floors beneath are for small galleries,......

...are special in their own way. Univers was designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1954 in Paris and in 1957 the font was released by the French foundry Deberny & Peignot. Later in that year, Eduard Hoffmann and Max Miedinger created another typeface which was meant to be the improved version of the ever-present Akzdenz Grotesk. These twins are the main players of the International typographic style because they reflect the forthcoming of mass travel and modern consumerism which have not stopped since then. Typefaces are not just letters with different shapes, they carry meaning and impact society. One message can be understood in a hundred different ways just by changing the typeface in which it is written. Both Univers and Helvetica are clean, pure and have functionality. They have been so widely used just because they shift the focus of the reader on the message not on the letters. Furthermore the essay is going to compare and contrast the typefaces, analayse their history and origins as well as critically examine design work in which they have been used in. It will also outline why they have not lost their popularity amongst contemporary designers and which one of the “twins” is preferable and why. Bibliography Hollis, R. (2006). Swiss graphic design.
