Interview with Akira Kobayashi in
novum design magazine

The 10.13 issue of novum includes an interview with Akira Kobayashi, Type Director at Monotype, about the legibility and design of Neuen Frutiger 1450, which was created specifically with the new DIN standard 1450 in mind. The DIN norm gives recommendations for the development and use of fonts in the public sector, taking account of the needs of people with impaired vision. The October edition of novum is not only worth reading for its interesting content, but is also a beautiful collector’s item for all lovers of design thanks to its elaborately designed lasercut cover.
