"Frutiger (pronounced with a hard g) is a series of typefaces named after
its Swiss designer, Adrian Frutiger. Frutiger is a humanist sans-serif
typeface, intended to be clear and highly legible at a distance or at
small text sizes. A very popular design worldwide, font designer Steve
Matteson described its structure as "the best choice for legibility in
pretty much any situation" at small text sizes, while Erik Spiekermann
named it as "the best general typeface ever"."
