tex-gyre-heros – A font family that extends URW Nimbus Sans L

The Gyre Heros family of sans-serif fonts is based on URW Nimbus Sans L. The original font, Helvetica, was prepared by Max Miedinger (with Eduard Hoffmann) in 1957 at the Haas type foundry. Gyre Heros may be used as a substitute for Adobe Helvetica in documents.

The standard faces of Heros have been greatly extended. The family is available both in Adobe Type 1 and in OpenType formats, and support (for use with a variety of encodings) is provided. Vietnamese characters were added by Han The Thanh.

Gyre Heros is distributed as part of the Gyre collection.
