Neue Haas Grotesk Display

Completed for Richard Turley's 2010 redesign of Bloomberg Businessweek, this typeface was a restoration project: bringing Miedinger's original Neue Haas Grotesk back to life with as much fidelity to his original shapes and spacing as possible, rather than trying to rethink Helvetica or improve on current digital versions. Miedinger's original Neue Haas Grotesk included a number of interesting alternates, including a cedilla that looked more like a flattened comma (apparently preferred in Switzerland at the time), but the most striking was a straight-legged R, available in each of his handful of original weights by special order only, but now easy to access in digital form.
