Compacta

History of compacta (urgent)

Forums: 

Hi there! Does anyone have any information about the sans serif font, Compacta? My classmate and I were assigned to this font and are required to do a research on it. So far i have got the year it was created and the creator, Fred Lambert. I need the history of the font; eg. why is it named compacta, how the designer came about this design. We failed this assignment as we did not have enough information and now are given a second chance. Pls pls help us if you know anything or if you have any related links! Thank you so much!!
