But don’t quite agree with this.

Taken from Helvetica: Homage To A Typeface via here. And I really really should be sleeping… like a normal human being.

I have a love-hate relationship with this font. Thin, Light, Neue, Bold and Condense…argh!!

It’s true. Helvetica just doesn’t work in body text. It just doesn’t look right. Univers would be a better choice. It visually flows better.
But as the saying goes… “When in doubt, use Helvetica”.
