HELVETICA & HELVETICA NEUE FONTS
Helvetica is a sans-serif typeface that was designed in 1957 by Swiss typeface designer Max Miedinger with input from Eduard Hoffmann. The typeface was originally called Neue Haas Grotesk and was designed for the Haas Type Foundry in Switzerland.
Helvetica was created as a response to the increasing demand for a more modern, streamlined typeface in the mid-20th century. It was designed to be a simple, clean, and versatile typeface that could be used for a wide range of applications, from print to signage and beyond.
After its initial release, Neue Haas Grotesk was quickly licensed by Linotype and rebranded as Helvetica. The name “Helvetica” was chosen as a nod to Switzerland, the birthplace of the typeface and the home of the Haas Type Foundry.
Helvetica quickly gained popularity in the design world due to its clean, legible design and its versatility. It became particularly popular in the 1960s and 1970s, as the International Typographic Style, also known as Swiss Style, gained popularity. The International Typographic Style emphasized simplicity, clarity, and objectivity in design, and Helvetica was a perfect fit for this style.
Today, Helvetica is one of the most widely used typefaces in the world, and is recognized for its clean, modern design and its versatility across a wide range of applications.
