Helvetica is a widely used sans-serif typeface designed in 1957 by Max Miedinger and released by the Haas Type Foundry. It is known for its clean, modern, and highly legible design, and has become one of the most widely used typefaces in the world. Its design features include a tall x-height, wide apertures, and a large range of weights, allowing for versatility in its use.
The font evokes a sense of clarity, simplicity, and neutrality, making it a good choice for a variety of projects. It is often used in corporate identity and branding, as well as in editorial and advertising design. Helvetica is also a popular choice for web design, as its clean lines and legibility make it easy to read on screens of all sizes.
