Happy 80th Birthday, Mr. Adrian Frutiger!
One May 24th 2008, one of the most well known, and ground-breaking typographers of the twentieth century, Mr. Adrian Frutiger, turns 80! For those of you who aren't familiar with the man himself, you're likely to have come across something in design that has used one of the many typefaces he has designed, such as Frutiger, Univers, and Avenir to name a few...
Anyhow, in celebration of the man's great contributions to type design, Linotype has initiated a call for personal birthday wishes, which includes the option of attaching an image... feeling up to the challenge of creating a typographic 'birthday card' for a type legend? ;) Check out the Linotype website for more information about Mr. Frutiger, his typefaces, and their personal birthday wish initiative, visit www.linotype.com - cheers!
