According to the font designer Anuthin Wongsunkakon, the Frutiger Thai fonts are multi-purpose: one has terminal loops, the other does not. The two alternative letterforms result from their observations of current and former trends in Thai typography, as well as a desire to create fonts that complement the minimalist of the Latin Frutiger.

For type work that involves mixing Thai and English scripts, Frutiger Thai provides designers with the convenience to either set a Thai font with loops, or one without, alongside the sans serif Frutiger. The traditional-minded compositors, who believe that Thai body text is the sole domain of loop terminals, may go for the loops; while those with a modernist outlook may opt for the loop-less face.

Neue Frutiger Thai is available in 6 weights: Light, light italic, Regular, Regular Italic, Bold and Bold Italic. To order font, please email info@alttype.com.sg

These versions are available in the weights Light, Regular and Bold, with the corresponding italic variants. Helvetica Thai harmonises perfectly with its Latin original and these two can thus happily be used in combination. With its pared-down and simplified form, Helvetica Thai replicates the appearance of modern Thai calligraphy.
