Helvetica Light Oblique is an admired font of the Helvetica family. The Light is a family comprising of varied fonts like Light Oblique, Condensed Light and other similar fonts that define the lightness and fineness of the font. The Helvetica Light font is designed by Erich Schultz-Anker and Arthur Ritzel at Stempel and further to that, slight slope and slanting curve gives a different style to the simple font. In the Oblique form the sloping direction distinguishes the font completely from the Light variant. It just gives a style to a rather simple font and is widely accepted by many business houses across the globe.
The being said, the font is of great reading value. At a time when complicated fonts were ruling the industry, Helvetica Light turned out to be one of the most stylish and simple font. A clean crisp design of the font took over the flowery and difficult to read fonts in no time. Big corporate companies like Staples, Motorola and Panasonic also started to use the font for their billboards, magazines, postcards, business cards, advertisement leaflets and brochure as well.
