This week we are going to take some time to fill you in on our favorite fonts here at Skytemple and tell you a little about them.  Our first font is:

Helvetica is a well-loved in the design world.  Developed in 1957 by the Swiss designers Max Miedinger and Edüard Hoffmann, Helvetica is a clean, modern, extremely legible sans-serif typeface.  It is used by countless businesses and organizations to disseminate their messages to the public, including the US government (take notice of the text on your next income tax form).  This seeming king of typography is almost omnipresent in the modern world, so much so that it received some sizable recognition when it turned 50 in 2007.  There is even a documentary about the development and proliferation of Helvetica as well as the effect and psychology of typography in everyday life.
