I got this neat idea for a movie. You know Paul Renner, right?
Duh, he designed Futura. Classic, but clunky, not as nice as Avenir.

Impossible. He died 32 years before it was designed.
Not in my movie. Let’s say he’s found this time machine…and he uses it to to spy on Frutiger’s drafts for Avenir, and he comes back in time, uses the knowledge gained, and revises his own Futura!

Back to the Futura.
