Pimp my Helvetica


We are a couple of days away from 2015 and to give some inspiration for the next year there's nothing better than a really cool typography project playing with one of designers' favorite fonts, Helvetica. That's what Redak Anderson did to pay homage to a font that in his opinion solve his design problems very well.

For quite a long time I have been questioning myself about fonts and how easy they should solve communication problems more effectively. Helvetica, for me is one of the families that, in my opinion, meet these needs and that's the reason that I decided to pay some homage with something else, like colors and different details.

Redak is a character designer, digital artist and illustrator from Lima, Peru. For more information about him check out his Behance profile at https://www.behance.net/redak
