Helvetica

I find myself using this font over and over mostly for all of my projects, and I never got bored of it or tired from using it. It is just because of the different categories that you can use to show hierarchy. Helvetica is one of the most popular typefaces of that is used all of the time. Its history goes back to when it was designed by Max Miedinger in 1957 for the Haas in Switzerland. But then again new improvements were added into the sans serif sub-category of neo-grotesque. Soon after its introduction, the original Helvetica typeface was purchased by Stempel foundry that developed a full series of weights. In the 1960s Helvetica approached the United States, where they did not have similar alignment standards; Mergenthaler Linotype copied the Stempel series and then added quite a few new versions of the design. Helvetica is suits any kind of design which graphic designers are pleased to work with.
