Helvetica is a sans-serif typeface designed by Max Miedinger. It was originally released through the Haas Type Foundry in 1957. The design of Helvetica was influenced by Akzidenz Grotesk. The original name of Helvetica was Neue Haas Grotesk but was later changed to Helvetica which means Swiss in Latin. Helvetica is considered the quintessential neo-grotesque typeface.
