Hello fellow designers, I am looking for suggestions on a similar (open) substitute for the Akzidenz font family. Any ideas?
Both Helvetica and Arial (which most people have one or the other) are descendants of Akzidenz-Grotesque. If you’re specifically looking for an open-source face, Roboto is similar and comes in lots of different weights.
Helvetica. Always a solid choice. Sorry J-B, but personally I could never choose Arial!
Any other Neo-Grotesque typeface would also suffice. Univers is pretty solid.
