Helvetica Vs. Arial

I’m not sure what the point of this is (or how to win), but it is fun for some strange reason.

The inspiration:

Helevetica was developed by the Haas Foundry of Switzerland in the 1950s. Microsoft distributed a typeface called Arial, a very similar typeface, that comes bundled with every desktop computer.

The Arial font has overtaken Helvetica as the standard font in practically everything done by those who don’t know better.

Take the role of Helvetica, and let Arial know we don’t need its type around here.

The Scourge of Arial tells the whole story.
