My final type specimen poster for Avenir.

  • Avenir was designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1988.
  • It is an example of a sans serif font.
  • In the 1920s, certain sans serif fonts began using circles as a geometric foundation. Avenir was based off this idea, but it was intended to be a more “organic” and “natural” interpretation. Specific details of Avenir were more similar to traditional, flowing fonts; for example, the “a” was multi-leveled as opposed to single-tiered, and the “t” had an organic curl at the end. In addition, the “o” is not a perfect circle, and was actually adjusted for optimal optical viewing.
