HALVETICA – Amrith de Zoete

 

How do you like Helvetica?
Helvetica for me is a beautiful font, it is perfect. Wherever Helvetica is used it brings a clean and stylish look. That aside I think Helvetica is overly used. I actually never use Helvetica because of this reason.

What did you try to change on the original Helvetica with this hack?
With my hack I tried to hold on to a few rules. I first bisected letters and making new compositions with these new letter forms. I couldn’t make a readable alphabet. After, I divided the letters in thirds and fourths. In this way I could make small changes that can applicable in every letter and keeps the readability of the helvetica. Overall I tried to make the uppercase and lowercase collaborate, making new forms and shapes.
