    When I think of Adrian Frutiger, I think of, well, Frutiger, which is sort of a humanist grotesk, maybe. Then I think of Myriad Pro. Of course Frutiger didn't design Myriad, but Myriad is pretty much...

    I understand what you are trying to achieve (and I have seen some other good examples in a similar style) but to me it doesn't read as 'EFM'. It seems incomplete. Needs more work. Or a different appr...

    There is no recognition of your initials without knowing what they are. Nicely executed but conception is weak. Try another avenue.

    Leyral— You are right. My error—I confused the dates. It was Myriad that was introduced in 1992. Frutiger was released in about 1976, not long after being introduced in the signage for the Charles De Gaulle Airport.

          I recently have come to like Eurostile and Klavika as far as sans serif goes

          I think Elephant, Georgia and Bodoni have the wins for me in serif

                Last job I did for a big ol' corporation that uses Klavika for identity, I ended up buying the whole family. Quite nice, though I feel the italics are under-used compared to the uprights.

                  I like the letter shapes for Klavika, but I agree with you about the italics being under-used. I'm not sure which existed first but Tiltium Text has similar shape, and pretty light weights. Though light weight is dreadful for screenprinting at small sizes, it looks like the screener sneezed and left a thin line where something else should have.

                  Have you ever used Itsadzoke? I haven't used it much design wise but the characters are lovely to look at.

                      Helvetica. They even made a documentary on it.
