Helvetica or Neue Haas Grotesk is a widely used sans-
serif typeface developed in 1957 by Swiss typeface designer Max
Miedinger with input from Eduard Hoffmann.
Helvetica 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. Over
the years, a wide range of variants have been released in different
weights, widths and sizes, as well as matching designs for a range of non-
Latin alphabets. Notable features of Helvetica as originally designed
include a high x-height, the termination of strokes on horizontal or
vertical lines and an unusually tight spacing between letters, which
combine to give it a dense, compact appearance.
