What does avenir mean?

Here's a list of possible definitions for the term avenir:


  1. Avenir

    Avenir is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1988 and released by Linotype GmbH, now a subsidiary of Monotype Corporation. The word avenir is French for "future". The font takes inspiration from the early geometric sans-serif typefaces Erbar, designed by Jakob Erbar, and Futura, designed by Paul Renner. Frutiger intended Avenir to be a more organic, humanist interpretation of these highly geometric types. While similarities can be seen with Futura, the two-story lowercase a is more like Erbar, and also recalls Frutiger’s earlier namesake typeface, Frutiger. Avenir was originally released in 1988 with three weights, each with a roman and oblique version, and used Frutiger's two-digit weight and width convention for names: 45, 46, 55, 56, 75, and 76. The typeface family was later expanded to six weights, each with a roman and an oblique version.
