Helvetica is one of the most commonly used and clean looking fonts out there. Developed in the late 1950′s by Swiss typeface designer Max Miedinger, in 1957, it was designed to provide competition to Akzidenz-Grotesk, who dominated the Swiss market. The aim of Helvetica designs was to create a neutral typeface which could be used in a huge variety of signage and writing.
The name Helvetica was brought in following initial success in 1960, and to help market the name of the Helvetica fonts to many different countries.
Nowadays, though, Helvetica is one of the most cleanly cut and commonly used fonts on the web. Known for the ease of use to read in small sizes, the different curves and slants of the font style makes it very unique and extremely clean to read and use. It is most commonly used by websites and advertising campaigns, yet it is extremely difficult to get a hold of… For free that is!
