About this artwork
Happy National & Day!!
Helvetica… Originally brought into light during the summer of 1957 in Switzerland as Neue Hass Grotesk by designer Max Miedinger (commissioned by Haas Type Foundry). Haas Type Foundry’s parent company, Stempel (of Germany), requested the typeface name to be changed. Stempel and Haas Type Foundry agreed on Helvetica… It’s an offshoot of “Helvetia”, Latin for Switzerland. There’s been numerous digital adjustments to Helvetica over the years, unlike Neue Hass Grotesk.
Helvetica is widely used for corporate logos (BMW, 3M, Jeep, McDonald’s, Target, Panisonic, the list goes on…) and heavily used by the U.S. Government (NASA, tax forms). If I was kidnapped and opened my eyes in a foreign place, chances are the first thing out my mouth would be "Helvetica" ... it’s ubiquitous.
