About this font family
Frutiger Next is Adrian Frutiger’s and Linotype’s completely new interpretation of the well known typeface, Frutiger.

With the re-worked forms the areas of application are almost limitless, and Frutiger Next can be used for anything from office communications to multimedia to complex printed materials.
