Halloween is simply across the nook and whereas most celebrations are fairly innocent — drunken costume events, skeleton decorations, the maiming of harmless pumpkins — there are some individuals on this world that simply take issues too far.
Kerning, which adjusts the areas between letters based mostly on how they’re formed, is often utilized to make the textual content extra pleasing. Hellvetica, nevertheless, turns it into its anti-thesis by randomizing the areas between — leading to nauseating satan script.
What makes this atrocity is much more blasphemous is it distorts Helvetica, which is taken into account by many to be the world’s most iconic and delightful font. It’s been utilized in a myriad of timeless designs, such because the New York Metropolis’s subway system. Right here you possibly can see Roif’s tackle it with Hellvetica:

It’s clear Roif and Woodward wish to see the world burn… however after having downloaded it and performed round with it a bit, I’m beginning to be satisfied by their anarchist methods (additionally the ‘kern in hell’ pun helped tip me over the road). Magnificence and order are overrated, it’s time to wreak havoc on our inflexible on-line world! Additionally, why ought to I alone undergo via studying a textual content in Hellvetica?
I encourage everybody to band collectively and use Hellvetica on Halloween. Are you a designer engaged on a brand new advert marketing campaign for an insurance coverage dealer? A instructor updating a course syllabus? Or maybe heart specialist writing out prescriptions? Doesn’t matter, kern all of it.
Wreak havoc and be at liberty to tweet the outcomes to us @thenextweb.
