One can easily say Akira Kobayashi's AXIS sans is a beautiful distillation of Frutiger and Meta. Does it surpasses those types? Decide for yourself.
TypeProject is releasing trial versions of the regular and condensed styles.
I'm sure you'll see, like I have, AXIS presents text clearly, friendly, and yet is a fresh take on familiar informational type designs .

REMEMBER THIS IS A TRIAL- YOU WILL HAVE TO DELETE THE FONT FILES FROM YOUR MACHINE AFTER THE TRIAL IS OVER!

PS... Wouldn't it be nice for a latin only version of these type?
