Helvetica
Max Miedinger
Traditional Sans-Serif

Helvetica is one of the most recognizable typefaces in the


world. You can find it practically everywhere from billboards to
mobile applications to web pages. Max Miedinger and Eduard
Hoffmann designed the typeface itself in Switzerland in 1957.
It was originally called Die Neue Haas Grotesk, and was based
off of Schelter-Grotesk, while drawing aspirations from Akzi-
denz-Grotesk that was created around 1898. The name of the

1957
font was later changed to Helvetica to make it more marketable
internationally. Helvetica means Swiss
in Latin, paying homage to its home
land. It was created with the intentions
of being a neutral typeface; it didn’t
have any impression or have nay
meaning in itself. The premise was that
type itself should give no meaning.
Helvetica has an important place
in European history. After the war, companies were looking
for new typefaces so they can move on from the fancy, dec-
orative typefaces that were using. They wanted to create a
new identity and Helvetica allowed them to do that. Helvetica
set them apart from the rest, and companies are still using
it today because it has been associated with the corporate
culture for so long.
