Neue Helvetica – About the Font
The key design concepts were drawn by Max Miedinger in 1957.
About the Font
Originally designed in 1957 for hand compostion, Helvetica® font has been adapted over the years for all methods of composition, from hot metal line composition and opto-mechanical photosetting of the first generation to digital typesetters.
We refined the 54-unit system and the spacing.
Its subtly shaded range offers you a much larger choice of weights and versions.
Uniform, delicately refined stylistic features have been maintained in all three versions, the condensed, the regular and the extended.
The cap height is the same throughout the entire family.
The x-height is the same in all weights, because it increases as the stroke thickness increases.
There is more emphasis on the punctuation marks, for even better results in reproduction.
New numbering system for your easy reference.
Each weight and version has its own number.
