2001. Art Directed by Ken Barber and Andy Cruz. Released by House Industries. Designed at Font Bureau.
Although Simian's roots are in Ed Benguiat's logos for the Planet of the Apes movies, Simian wound up veering off in its own direction. The display styles look very techno, and we really went nuts with the ligatures, since this was one of House's first Opentype releases.
I think the text styles ended up looking kind of like an eccentric cousin to Frutiger.
Display and Text styles in Orangutan, Chimapnzee and Gorilla weights.
