Neue Haas Unica

The original purpose behind the creation of the typeface Haas Unica was to provide a sympathetic update of Helvetica. But now the font designer Toshi Omagari has decided to make this typeface his own and has thus significantly supplemented and extended it.

It’s Neue Haas Grotesk + Helvetica + Univers so it’s called Neue Haas Unica, get it? Silly name aside, I like it, it’s sturdy and versatile, a great riff from the original typefaces, a great remix that blends the best of both Univers and Helvetica.
