We’d choose Univers over Helvetica every time – it’s crafted better, the proportions are more definite, it has a smaller x-height than Helvetica, and the base font sets a little wider.
Univers is known for its clear lines and legibility at great distances. It’s an incredibly diverse typeface that works very well at both large and small character sizes.
Univers is designed by Adrian Frutiger and pronounced oo-nee-VEHR.
