Akzidenz Grotesk

Akzidenz Grotesk is a grotesque sans-serif typeface that dates back to 1896. It was the first sans-serif typeface to ever be widely used and it later influenced the design of Helvetica. Akzidenz Grotesk has a much lower x-height than Helvetica which is an easy way to tell the two apart. I’m always happy to see Akzidenz Grotesk used on the web in place of Helvetica because it immediately gives the design a much more distinctive feel.
