Abstract

Helvetica, Arial & Univers are well-known typefaces that are often used to represent the sans serif typeface classification. Though similar, the three typefaces are often objects of debate in terms of which is better. The research conducted by the author is held in hopes to compare each typeface in terms of readability. The research is done with several literature reviews regarding the typefaces, formal analysis of the alphabets of the typefaces and also an experiment involving 20 participants that were all design students. As preliminary research, the author had highlighted several differences regarding the three typefaces. This research can be used as a reference to study the three typefaces in terms of readability and also as a reference to typeface readability analysis.
