Neue Frutiger Zip: A Modern and Versatile Typeface for Global Brands

Neue Frutiger Zip is a new font family that combines the classic and functional design of Neue Frutiger with a compressed and dynamic style. It is ideal for branding, signage, editorial, and digital applications that require a high-impact and space-saving typeface.

Neue Frutiger Zip is based on the original Frutiger typeface, designed by the legendary Adrian Frutiger in the 1970s for the wayfinding system of the Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Frutiger became a modern classic for its clarity, legibility, and warmth in both print and signage environments. In 2009, Akira Kobayashi of Monotype collaborated with Adrian Frutiger to revise and improve the design, creating Neue Frutiger, a well-balanced family of 10 weights with matching italics[^1^].

Neue Frutiger Zip takes the Neue Frutiger design to a new level of expression and functionality. It features a condensed and dynamic style that adds energy and rhythm to the text. It also has a large x-height and open counters that enhance readability at small sizes and on screens. Neue Frutiger Zip comes in 10 weights, from Ultra Light to Extra Black, with matching italics, offering a wide range of typographic possibilities.

Neue Frutiger Zip is part of the Neue Frutiger World super-family, which covers more than 150 languages and scripts including Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Georgian, Armenian, Hebrew, Arabic, Thai and Vietnamese[^2^]. This makes it a perfect choice for global brands that want to communicate with a consistent tone of voice across markets and geographies. Neue Frutiger Zip also pairs seamlessly with Monotypeâs new Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) designs: M XiangHe Hei for Chinese; Seol Sans for Korean; and Tazugane Info and Tazugane Gothic for Japanese[^2^].

If you are looking for a modern and versatile typeface that can handle any design challenge, look no further than Neue Frutiger Zip. You can purchase it from MyFonts or contact Monotype for bespoke licensing options[^2^]. You can also experiment with Neue Frutiger Zip and many other fonts on Monotypeâs website[^2^].

Neue Frutiger Zip is not only a practical and versatile typeface, but also a beautiful and expressive one. It has a distinctive personality that can convey different moods and messages depending on the weight and style. The lighter weights are elegant and refined, while the heavier weights are bold and striking. The italics are dynamic and lively, adding a touch of flair and movement to the text.

Neue Frutiger Zip can be used for a variety of design projects, such as logos, headlines, posters, banners, brochures, magazines, websites, apps, and more. It can also be combined with other fonts to create interesting contrasts and hierarchies. For example, you can pair Neue Frutiger Zip with a serif font for a classic and sophisticated look, or with a script font for a casual and friendly look.

Neue Frutiger Zip is a typeface that will never go out of style. It is based on the timeless and universal design principles of Adrian Frutiger, who once said: "If you remember the shape of your spoon at lunch, it has to be the wrong shape. The spoon and the letter are tools; one to take food from the bowl, the other to take information off the page... When it is a good design, the reader has to feel comfortable because the letter is both banal and beautiful."

With Neue Frutiger Zip, you can create designs that are both banal and beautiful, that are both functional and aesthetic, that are both global and personal. Neue Frutiger Zip is a typeface that will make your designs stand out and speak to your audience. 9160f4acd4
