Adrian Frutiger (b. 1928) was born in the Swiss Alps and spent most of his carreer in France. In 1952, he oversaw the drawing office at Deberny & Peignot in Paris, and in 1961 he founded his own studio with Bruno Pfäffli and André Gürtler. His were amoung the very first faces developed for photo-typesetting, and he also developed a face for Optical Character Recognition. His self-titled face, Frutiger, was developed from his lettering for the Charles de Gaulle Airport.
