Inspired by Akzidenz Grotesk, Univers is an important typeface in Swiss typographic history. Univers was the first typeface to use Frutiger’s number system.

The number system gives a two digit number to each weight/style. the prefix (1st number) defines the weight, the Suffix (second) desifns the style.

Univers
serif: Realist Sans
characteristics: numbering system, large number of weights and styles. use of many different weights and styles together still can look good.
