Helvetica – Now You Can Have Your Font And Eat It Too

Everyone loves Helvetica. Even though I’m not a designer, I have seen many of my designer friends fall completely in love with that font. I asked @Minervity what the appeal of Helvetica is, and he said, “It is a robust, iconic font that looks good in almost all designs.” I never knew a font could have such an impact on people all over the world.

Here is a little Helvetica trivia for you – Did you know that it was originally called “Neue Haas Grotesk” when it was developed in 1957? Three years later, in 1960, the name of the font was changed to “Helvetica” to make it more marketable. For all you Helvetica lovers out there, I have some exciting news for you. Now you can have your font and eat it too! That’s right. These precious little Helvetica cookie cutters will surely go on your wish list.

Created by Beverly Hsu, they are not manufactured yet; however, according to her website, you can email her at beverlyhsu@gmail.com and she will let you know when they are available for purchase. Oh, and about the dude with the Helvetica tramp stamp above.. apparently that is for real and it hurt like HELvetica to get. You can see the full size picture here.
