Adrian Frutiger

Typography must be as beautiful as a forest, not like the concrete jungle of the tenements It gives distance between the trees, the room to breathe and allow for life.

— Adrian Furtiger

Aganè is a tribute to type designer Adrian Frutiger (1918 - 2015), inspired by his font Frutiger (1976) and Avenir (1988).

Terminals

The inclinations in the terminals were designed in order to optimize the legibility from different reading perspectives.

These design variations were developed considering not only the position of the signage and its perspective, but also the position of the viewer while reading.

Aganè S

Aganè S is a variation of Aganè. In this version have been modified the heights of ascending and descending lines of some lowercase letters: b, d, f, g, h i, k, l, p, q, t and y. This design choice leads to an height variation of all capital letters.

This second variation is suitable for wayfinding signage, because is easier to read and use for the moving user

Noorda Font

The planning of the Aganè is inspired by the high Noorda Font’s letters. It was designed by dutch designer Bob Noorda to be used within the visual identity of the Milan’s Metro, inaugurated in 1964. Noorda was able to optimize the signage’s usability, altering proportions of the Helvetica. His work was studied and used afterwards for the signage's design of several world's underground.
