Beautiful Helvetica Inspired Artworks (Fanart, Posters, Wallpapers & Icons)

Geared with its simple and clean lines, Helvetica has become the favorites of designers from all around the world. When you walk into the streets and look around closely, you will come to realize that Helvetica is indeed used very widely. If you are in doubt, watch this trailer. How often do you see a movie being made for a typeface?

Perhaps Helvetica’s creators, Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoffmann, would have never imagined that their sans serif masterpiece could become one of the world’s design classics. Initially, they wanted to create a typeface that could be used for a variety of signage at that time. “Neue Hass Grotesk”, its original name, was eventually born.

As its usage and popularity grew, the need to market the typeface internationally also grew. Hence, the Latin name for Swiss, Helvetica, was adopted to enhance its appeal. .

Today, Helvetica has evolved from a mere typeface into a visual culture. Many people would have known about the uncanny resemblance of Helvetica and Arial but few would have known the long controversy behind it. Here’s a gist of the story:

Many claimed that Microsoft opted for Arial (which was created in 1982) over Helvetica as its standard font format because it was cheaper and most people would not tell the difference between both fonts. The debate still goes on, even up till today.

Characterized in a clear and easy-to-read fashion, it is no wonder that Helvetica can be easily manipulated or incorporated to create a wide array of artworks of different design styles and expressions yet from the same source of inspiration.

So here is a little treat of Helvetica Inspired Artworks to satisfy the design appetites of many. If you are a fan of Helvetica, you are definitely gonna love this. If you aren’t a fan, you will probably be one after this post.
