About this font family

Arial is one of the most widely used designs of the last 30 years. Drawn in 1982 by Robin Nicholas and Patricia Saunders for use in an early IBM® laser printer, Arial has become a staple for textual content.

While it is widely believed that Arial’s design was based on Helvetica, it is more accurate to consider Monotype Grotesque as its ancestor.
