Univers CyrillicDesigners: Adrian Frutiger, Alexei Chekulayev
Publisher: Linotype
Univers Cyrillic was created by Adrian Frutiger, Alexei Chekulayev and published by Linotype. Univers Cyrillic consists of 27 designs and family plan choices. p > Univers was developed by Adrian Frutiger on Swiss concepts for Charles Peignot at Deberny & & Peignot.

Frutiger enforced stringent discipline throughout all aspects of the series, from light to dark, extra condensed to extended, a concordance of style that was possible in the foundry type and photocomposition typefaces. Any version may be blended within a word with any other. It might be argued that the style of the most popular central series is restricted by strict conformity to little used extremes. If Helvetica offers us the strongest main styles at some sacrifice in harmony throughout the series, Univers provides us an uniform series by disciplining the main designs.

Alteration of character widths required by the Monotype caster separates Monotype Univers from the initial; the Linotype photocomposition variation, designed by Frutiger, has a more even color across the series, achieved by relaxing the original stiff formula for stroke width.

IBM Selectric Univers, created by Frutiger, is less effective, given that it had to be put on widths tuned for Times Roman.
