Default Neue Swift OT family

Gerard Unger’s Swift has long been one of my favorite text types. Now Unger has worked with Linotype to bring out Neue Swift, a full-featured OpenType family.

Unger has been designing type since the 1960s, beginning with the Hell Digiset. He is an expert on the life and work of American type designer W.A. Dwiggins. He has done a lot of thinking about type design, readability/legibility, in particular, and written a thoughtful book about it: While You’re Reading. And he received the Typography Award this summer from the Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA).

Some of Unger’s other type designs include Hollander, Demos, Praxis, and Flora.
