Typography: Univers Font

In the 1950's, Typography finally broke from its conservative influences, dating back centuries, to develop type shapes applicable for use in modern communication mediums.

In 1950, Adrian Frutiger, 1928- , planned and realized a font family as a connected conceptual system, the 21 Univers alphabets. The look of this new font was fresh and contemporary, a result of the calculations of the stoke width and the relationship between the stroke and the surrounding white space.
