For Logo Power, Try Helvetica

You heard it right:

While it’s hard to make a direct link between a typeface and a company’s annual revenues, it’s clear that corporations and designers now understand the potential power of a logo. And the logos of many top-selling, enduring brands share a single typeface in common: Helvetica.

Fast forward to tomorrow

Your client: Hey, how’s it going? Great, great. You know, I’ve been thinking, we could use a new logo, don’t you think? Something enduring. Something stable. Have you ever heard of this thing called Helvetica?
