Cool fact about Helvetica origins.

COOL fact about Helvetica’s name and its origin:
Just so you know, Helvetica is kind of an evolution of the Akzidenz Grotesk font designed by H. Berthold AG type foundry in 1896. Years later Max Miedinger redesign it and name it Neue Haas Grotesk, but they change it and called it “Helvetia” as the female national personification of Switzerland, in order to make it sound better they rename it Helvetica.

Dato bastante interesante acerca del nombre de Helvetica y su origen:
Para que sepan, Helvetica es una evolución de la fuente Akzidenz Grotesk diseñada por la casa tipográfica H. Berthhold AG en mi 1896. Años después, Max Miedinger la rediseño y la llamó Neue Haas Grotesk, pero lo cambiaron y la llamaron Helvetia como se le llamaba a la personificación femenina del país Suiza, pero pare que sonara mejor lo renombraron: HELVETICA.
