We designed MP Roger as a workhorse typeface for Swiss graphic design layouts. We found the need to have a softer and friendlier alternative to cold and austere fonts like Helvetica & Akzidenz-Grotesk. MP Roger is named after one of the world’s greatest tennis players Roger Federer. The font channels Roger's class, gracefulness and style. Roger’s Swiss origin is also reflected in the foundation of the MP Roger design. By adding subtle flourish to the overall collection, specifically the “a” and “g” characters, we hoped to express Roger’s smooth style on and off the court. MP Roger will be released in the winter of 2012 with multiple weights and alternate characters.
