Background

It would be difficult to describe Neue Swift as a redesign of the classic Swift typeface family. Neue Swift is not so much a new design as it is a significant upgrade. . . . Recently, Linotype worked together with Unger to create new OpenType fonts based on Swift 2.0.

Dubbing these “new Swift 2.0” fonts “Neue Swift” (“neue” means “new” in German), Linotype also expanded the character set, adding dozens of new glyphs per font.
