What can be more lovely than a wedding, an intimate invitation, a gift from the heart? One whose presentation uses the warm and welcoming family of typefaces, Adorn. With a modern and sometimes quirky twist on the staid, almost corporate look of formal invitations, this family of lettering typefaces arms designers with a breathtakingly large number of faces that work harmoniously, despite the distinctiveness of each. Even larger and more multilayered than Worthington’s award-winning Charcuterie collection, Adorn offers seven display fonts, four script designs, monograms, ornaments, illustrations, banners, frames, and catchwords.
In 1968, Adrian Frutiger was commissioned to develop a signage system suited to the architecture of the new Charles de Gaulle Airport outside Paris. His final design for the client, implemented in 1975, is a simple, clean, robust sans serif type that is highly legible. In 1976, Frutiger completed the family for the Stempel foundry.
