50 Years of Helvetica






























An exhibition celebrating the 50th birthday of Helvetica, first created as Neue Haas Grotesk by Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoffman but then later changed in 1960 to be called Helvetica, practically the most versatile typeface known to man.  Some of these posters are so minimal and require nothing more than the sans serif details that is Helvetica.

The "I Have a Dream" at the end doesn't look like Helvetica to me.

It's not, and funny how it's included in the series actually. It seems like the only Helvetica is the "Martin Luther King Jr." subcopy
