Univers - Poster by HiddenMutation Univers is a realist sans-serif typeface designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1954. Univers is one of a group of neo-grotesque sans-serif typefaces, all released in 1957, that includes Folio and Neue Haas Grotesk (later renamed Helvetica). These three faces are sometimes confused with each other, because each is based on the 1898 typeface Akzidenz-Grotesk. These typefaces figure prominently in the Swiss Style of graphic design.
This is one of the six designs I have created for my typography project. I have decided to base it on the typeface 'Gill Sans'. The colours I have used are very calm, natural and easy on the eye. I have chosen to use lots of angles in this piece, making it very dynamic and exciting. There is more information within this design than there is on any other poster I have created.
