    This is the 7" version – the 12" has a nicer cover design with playfully illustrated letters.

    See You and The Meaning Of Love are the fourth and fifth UK singles by Depeche Mode, both released in early 1982 and included on their second studio album A Broken Frame.

    Depeche Mode is set in Gillies Gothic, a typeface that was originally released by the Bauer Type Foundry in 1935. It was also known as Flott (“speedy”) in Germany. For See You, another script has been used: Futura Script. Unlike one could assume from the name, this style is not one of the many Futura variations that Paul Renner created for Bauer. Rather, it is credited to Edwin W. Shaar, who designed it for Intertype in 1954.

    Futura Script is used for the follow-up single as well, but now for the band name. The title is set in loosely spaced caps from Dom Casual.

    The covers were desiged by German artist and musician Moritz Reichelt of Ata Tak, also known as Moritz R® or Moritz Rrr.
