Times New Roman and Helvetica Envy - Font T-Shirts

Helvetica punches above its weight for a simple rounded sans-serif font.

Arial (originally Sonoran Sans Serif) was made popular by Microsoft through packaging with Windows, and is often seen as a ubiquitous equivalent to Helvetica.

‘Equivalent’ is rather a subjective word in this case and for some it’s easy to spot the differences between the fonts.  Arial could be said to have ‘Helvetica envy’.

Meanwhile poor old ‘Times New Roman’ is now languishing into relative obscurity based more on the fact it’s an older style serif font.  The ‘new’ is therefore something that people now gloss over (new in 1931).

These two designs are just a small celebration of how the world loves Helvetica.

Pylon Love T-Shirt by Natalie Tyler

I love simple and effective – oh and if you combine it with industrial ‘stuff’, then further bonus points.

Natalie Tyler’s got a great eye for typography and shows it here with a really cool homage to the poor unloved electricity pylon.

Study the letters for a moment…

Just don’t try and climb them to get your kite back (like the ‘scare’ films they used to show in schools in the seventies)
