I know some people don't like Helvetica. But I love Helvetica because it is so well crafted. It is a beautiful typeface. While I think it may be over used that does not in my mind take away from the fact that good design is good design.
Helvetica was created in the 1950s by the Haas Foundry in Switzerland. Microsoft later created Arial which is similar. I just never think a knock-off of anything is better. But Arial comes bundled with all computers. So Arial is used more than Helvetica...
So if you feel strongly either way or just like a little font fun you can play the helvetica vs. arial font game...Â enjoy!
