Helvetica (Originally called Die Neue Haas Grotesk) was developed in 1957 by Max Miedinger with Eduard Hoffmann at the Haas’sche Schriftgiesserei. It is so old, so yesterday, we almost always use some other font when creating a document. Not because the lettering is a bad looking font. When asking coworkers, it seems that the reason it isn’t use is because it’s the “default”.

Lucky for us, not everyone feels that way. When searching for examples of Helvetica being used, a article was found that covered 40 main line companies logos that use this as the base font. Here are just a few, to see the whole list takea look at the article over at Web Design Depot.
