“My favorite typefaces switch over time. Right now, I find myself turning to Univers (Adrian Frutiger, 1957) pretty regularly. With such a large family (21 faces), it can serve so many purposes. And I love that it's available in condensed and extended too. Clean and readable, it's a good workhorse.”
— John Clifford, Owner at Think Studio
“There is something immediately comfortable about the typeface. Yet the more time you spend with it, the more of the details you appreciate — while never becoming precious. The letterforms themselves adhere to a tight grid but this structure allows for a flexibility in the ways it can be used to express different ideas.” — Tim Guy, Creative Director at Google
