The Helvetica font is a widely used sans-serif typeface developed in 1957 by Swiss typeface designer Max Miedinger with input from Eduard Hoffmann. It is one of the most popular typefaces in the world and is used in signs and logos all over the world. It has sleek lines and a modern feel. Helvetica is very similar to the Arial font that was developed in 1982. To an untrained eye, the differences between the two fonts is almost undetectable. But if you look closely you will notice there are key differences among certain characters, notably G, R, r, t, a, and 3.
