[Typography] Adrian Frutiger (24 May 1928 – 12 September 2015)

Very sad news from the world of typography, a passion I’ve had for many years. One of the people whose works I’ve admired for more than 20 years, Adrian Frutiger, passed away on the 12th of September. He was 87. If you know anything about graphic design, you will have surely come across his work.

TypeDrawers has an obituary for Frutiger here. De Zeen has one here.
