Arial vs Helvetica – test your skills

October 6, 2009

It may be an often discussed topic, but when I came across this Arial vs Helvetica game on David Friedman’s Ironic Sans blog, I thought it was well worth a try. It’s a very good way to learn what features to look for in distinguishing similar fonts, and perhaps challenges the assumption that Arial is an “inferior cousin” to Helvetica. David has redesigned 20 logos, replacing the original Helvetica text with Arial. Can you spot the difference?
