Helvetica is a widely used sans-serif typeface developed in 1957 by Swiss typeface designer Max Miedinger with input from Eduard Hoffmann. It is a neo-grotesque or realist design, one influenced by the famous 19th century typeface Akzidenz-Grotesk and other German and Swiss designs. Its use became a hallmark of the International Typographic Style that emerged from the work of Swiss designers in the 1950s and 60s, becoming one of the most popular typefaces of the 20th century.
This website reflects both the week ten readings and the movie we watched in class. Helvetica may possibly be overused and represent a corporate society, but as mentioned in the week 10 readings; it is prime for writing pieces where you're just supposed to interpret the message of whats being written.
