It has been 60 years since Max Miedinger and Edouard Hoffmann were commissioned by the Swiss foundry Haas'sche Schriftgießerei (Haas) to modernize their sans serif typeface. It has been six decades, therefore, since the Helvetica typeface appeared in our lives.
To celebrate, the Spanish studio Husmee , which is also celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, has invited twenty designers and studios to pay homage to this typeface that has lovers and detractors in all corners of the world. Happy 60th birthday, Helvetica! 1 Pep Carrio Studio Each of the participants in the 60th Anniversary Helvetica.
Typeface project, including Oscar Mariné ( @oscarmarine ), Toormix, Estudio Pep Carrió ( @estudio_pep_carrio ), Mario Eskenazi or Photo Retouching Service Javier Mariscal, have had total freedom to celebrate the anniversary of one of the most used typefaces in the world and each one has printed their personal stamp on their poster, demonstrating the versatility of a typeface that does not lose its validity no matter how many years go by.
