Adrian Frutiger is one of the most prolific and known typographers in history. His work with type has produced some of the more usable, functional and beautiful typefaces around, such as: Meridién, Glypha, Serifa, Avenir, Frutiger and the immensely popular and infinitely useful Univers.
But, most designers have not heard of his work with shapes, forms and counterforms. His experimentation with creating shapes that communicate in an universal way through the use of only paper and scissors is not widely known.
I had to research, write, layout and design the complete article for this Swiss design.
In this article I intend to inform about the two very distinct yet united facets of Frutiger's life and career: typography and visual forms.
