Helvetica

8/Nov/11

Even though I have been quite persistent with comparing typefaces with Helvetica, I do still credit it. When I started studying Graphic Design I was introduced into many typefaces I didn’t even know existed, the more I see the fonts in class the more I recognise them in everyday life and how prestigious they are. I think Helvetica is the most successful font since it was brought out-in 1957 by the Swiss typeface design Max Miedinger and Edward Hoffmann. Designers have become so good at using Helvetica in the right ways that I think Helvetica has become the king or queen of typography.

If you’re interested I definitely think you should watch this.
