David Airey is graphic designer I have looked at before, his work is quite simplistic which appeals to me as I feel my work is similar. Whilst searching for type design pieces and books I stumbled upon this interesting article he published.

David Airey's 13 excellent typefaces every graphic designer needs

There is a decent array of styles old and new but one that caught my eye was 'Univers' a typeface designed by Adrian Frutriger, that guy who designed the aptly named fotn 'Frutiger' which is also in the list.

'Univers' just looks nice, its nice on the eye and easy to read. Most important of all it looks quite modern, wouldn't you agree? Well, it was actually designed in 1956. How weird? it doesn't look out of place today at all.
