Avenir is a sans-serif typeface designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1988. It was released by the type foundry Linotype and is one of the most popular typefaces of the last few decades. It is an updated version of the classic typeface Futura, but with a more humanistic feel. The letterforms are characterized by a strong vertical emphasis, open counters, and a slightly condensed letter width. The design features of Avenir make it stand out from other sans-serif typefaces, providing a unique and modern look.

It also evokes a sense of stability and trustworthiness, making it a great choice for business and financial applications. Additionally, its subtle curves and open counters make it suitable for use in magazines, newspapers, and other publications.
