Introducing : Tazugane Gothic – a Japanese font with the flair of Neue Frutiger


Developed as the Japanese version of the popular Neue Frutiger by Adrian Frutiger and Akira Kobayashi, Tazugane Gothic™ is a humanist sans with clear and legible forms.

The Tazugane Gothic typeface contains OpenType functions including proportional metrics and kerning. Like the Neue Frutiger typeface, Tazugane Gothic features ten different weights, ranging from Ultra Light to Extra Black, allowing for a broad range of applications.


By not making the individual characters too large, the balance of traditional handwriting taught in schools is preserved, producing a typeface with a distinctly human flavor that supports a sense of stability and readability.

New font release – Neue Frutiger Thai

Neue Frutiger Thai

In collaboration with Adrian Frutiger, Thai font designer Anuthin Wongsunkakon has expanded Neue Frutiger Neue Frutiger with a Thai variant. The Thai characters are available in traditional and modern style.

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
