27 Hip Helvetica Creations

From Typography Playing Cards to Fanatical Font Reviews

— August 2, 2012 — Art & Design
A popular and loved font by designers and typography nerds, Helvetica has amassed a legion of fans and a slew of spin-off creations. Developed by Swiss typeface designer Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoffmann, this sans-serif font is one of the most widely used typefaces around the world.

Everyone from branding magnums to novice designers can't get enough of this simple, yet sleek font. The easy-to-read spacing and undisturbed style makes it a popular choice for commercial work. Brands like American Apparel have even dedicated entire shirt lines to this hard-edged font. With everything from posters to t-shirts decked out in Helvetica script, fans and advocates can display their typography passion in style.

Released in 1957, Helvetica remains a popular choice for designers alike. Considering it has its own documentary, it's clear this font is here to stay.
