FRUTIGER TYPE


Frutiger was designed by Adrian Frutiger for the Charles Des Gaulle Airport in 1975. The typeface is designed to be see from a distance and at speed. 


The work beneath was created in response to both the function, history & design. 


The paper planes reference both the original function of typeface as well as echoing the high design level, it does its job extremly well with out you even knowing it, and shapes you see within the individual letters.
