Everyone loves Helvetica, right? This iconic typeface is a go to for most designers. It's always a starting point for new ideas. Helvetica was released onto the design world in 1957, created by Swiss typography masters Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoffmann, and it's survived countless fads and fashions. We love Helvetica because it's a survivor, and now it's a swish new NFT art collection.

Of course we've all been hearing about non-fungible tokens for a while now, and you can read our guide to What are NFTs? for a one-stop lowdown on what this new tech is all about. What's interesting here is that the grand old lady of design, Helvetica, is now part of this art trend, and it just feels right.
