Typeface FRUTIGER

Frutiger Frutiger is a sans-serif typeface by the Swiss type designer Adrian Frutiger. It is the text version of Frutiger’s earlier typeface Roissy, commissioned in 1970/71 by the newly built Charles de Gaulle Airport at Roissy, France, which needed a new directional sign system, which itself was based on Concorde, a font Frutiger had created in the early 1960s.

Leading, measure, tracking, and kerning all have to deal with the spacing of type. Leading, a word coming from the days when they used actual lead, is the space between lines of text, measure is the spacing between words, tracking is even space between glyphs and kerning is spacing between specific glyphs. All of these are equally important. Size: 10 pt - Leading: 12 pt
