The design team at GTF, founded in 1980 by RCA graduates Paule Neale and Andy Stevens, have spent more than two decades at the forefront of their industry, creating consistently innovative work that eschews trends and instead focusses on clarity, simplicity and conviction.

After an apprenticeship as a compositor, he continued his training in type and graphics at the Zurich School of Arts and Crafts (Kunstgewerbeschule) from 1949 to 1951, being taught by two renowned professors, Alfred Willimann and Walter Käch. Frutiger went to Paris in 1952 and worked as typeface designer and artistic manager at Deberny & Peignot. He established his international position as a typeface designer with his Univers sans-serif font, produced for metal and film in 1957. In addition to his typeface design, Frutiger has been a consultant to IBM and the Stempel typefoundry. In 2008 Frutiger collaborated on a reworked version of Meridien, which was released by Linotype as Frutiger Serif in honour of his 80th birthday. (Photograph reproduced courtesy of fontblog.de.)
