Helvetica Compressed is considered to be one of the most popular fonts of the previous times. The font was the discovery of Mathew Carter who designed this simple font with a narrow characteristic. The curved tail is used for the letter ‘Q’ and the bottom of ‘E’ is slightly tilde.
Similarly, other alphabets have a slight narrow and tight appearance. However, it looks quite similar to the Helvetica Inserta but curves and pointing lines make it slightly different from the former. This is the main typeface with a complete family of fonts comprising of Helvetica Compressed, Helvetica Extra Compressed and Helvetica Ultra Compressed
