Legendary type and graphic designer Gerard Unger, regards typography as a language unto itself. From highway signage to the lettering on coins, the work of Unger is all around us.

But the most ubiquitous of all his typefaces, must be The Gulliver. As the lettering used by America’s most widely read newspaper, as well as several national papers on the European continent, it made waves after debuting in 1993, for its remarkable legibility – while remaining ultra space-efficient.

As his career develops, Unger’s work becomes increasingly experimental, pushing the boundaries of typography without jeopardizing it’s functionality.
