How do you like Helvetica?
To be honest, I prefer Arial above Helvetica. I am aware of the history of Arial and Helvetica, but it hasn’t changed this. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like Helvetica, it is just a bit over-used.
What did you want to change on the Helvetica with this hack?
I thought Helvetica could be a good choice to change a little. The letter’s details expose enough, to form it’s own character. With giving it a small twist, people still can recognize it as Helvetica.
