I completely stole this from an graphic design/typography blog I occasionally read, AisleOne.
Helvetica Forever is an exhbition that tells the origins of the font, Helvetica, and will be going to Bulgaria and Germany next. Too bad it isn’t coming to the United States.
Helvetica is such a clean and modern font, it is probably my favorite of the Sans Serif fonts. It may seem like it looks exactly like Arial, but I think it looks a little wider. It also has more of a curve to its letters, like the end of lowercase a’s. And each letter is cut very straight, there are no slants on the tops of the lowercase t’s.
