Neue, Next, Nova: Enhanced Typefaces?
Member Fou… posted a topic in Talk¶ Many reknown typefaces, especially sans serifs, were renewed and enhanced with additional weights and widths. The first typeface I recalled that featured the 'new' marketing attribute was Helvetica Neue back in 1983. Were there any other typefaces with the 'new' attribute before that particular date? I wonder what is the genealogy of these attributes? When did they launch these Neue, Next and Nova? ¶ Linotype has many Neue, Next, Nova types in their catalogue. Why the differences in the names? What does it mean? Apart from this trio, are there any other names for 'new' in the typeface industry? Any thoughts? Thanks for your insights.
