HELVETICA & HELVETICA NEUE FONTS
Where did Helvetica come from? It originated in the second half of the 1950s from the already existing and owned by the Swiss Haas typewriter typeface with a very “original” name Haas Grotesk (a grotesque note on typography is the name of a sans serif font). His rethinking was revealed to the world by designer Max Midinger and Edward Hoffman, who led them.
Midinger turned Haas Grotesk into a modern, corresponding to all the canons of the Swiss school of design (functionality and simplicity), the font, calling it again unnecessarily “unexpectedly” – Neue (new) Haas Grotesk. In 1961, the German company Stamp released Midinger’s creation, making one defining amendment – they change the name from Neue Haas Grotesk to Helvetica (Swiss), but the original version was Helvetia (Latin name for Switzerland).

Why is it so popular?
The text, both small and large, is very pleasing to the eye, so it’s reading process is simple and easy. The font combines the perfect balance of white (counter-shape inside the letters) and black, because of this, each word looks complete and verified. At the same time, the message that comes through the text seems neutral and harmonious, as if Helvetica contains a kind of rod, defining its character, appealing to the majority.
