Helvetica. The boss of the 600-lb gorillas. A famous name, known in every corner of the world as the end-all, be-all of sans-serif typefaces. It even has its own feature film. But, what if everything you assumed about Helvetica was wrong? What if you were to learn that actually, Helvetica was a flawed original, full of errors that were later corrected, perfected and re-named? What if you could get this perfection for a far cheaper price than its more famous ancestor, without paying the exorbitant prices that the simple name can bring?

URW Nimbus Sans is that reality.

Taken from Max Miedinger's same original drawings, URW's Nimbus Sans was digitized in the early 80s from ultra-high quality analog artwork, utilizing the best technical process in the world. Make no mistake, URW Nimbus Sans is simply the best in the market, and should be viewed and used as a REPLACEMENT FOR Helvetica--it's the same original drawing made superior in every way.

In this same mold, there is also a perfected replacement for Helvetica's younger cousin, Neue Helvetica--Nimbus Sans Novus. The character shapes are identical, with perfected spacing and kerning. This, again is a perfected version, from the highest-quality artwork.

Nimbus Sans is available in literally any character set (Latin, Cyrillic, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, CJK, Thai etc.) and Nimbus Sans Novus is available in many scripts besides Latin: Cyrillic, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, etc.

Better. Cheaper. Smarter--URW Nimbus Sans and Nimbus Sans Novus.
