Linotype Univers is a completely reworked version of the original Univers typeface family designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1957. After a long process of painstakingly detailed revision, Frutiger and the design staff at Linotype completed this large joint project in 1997. All the existing weights were completely redrawn, with careful attention paid to making the proportions more consistent with each other and improving fine details such as curves and thick-to-thin stroke ratios. By following Frutiger’s original designs, the humanist character of the sans serif, Univers, now comes through more distinctly. The systemized numbering system has also been updated. With its sturdy, clean forms Linotype Univers can facilitate an expression of cool elegance and rational competence.
