Helvetica is the slightly fatter, less snappy looking one.

Did they make the Scotch one in MS Paint? You can see they just brushed black over the old logo text and it doesn't match the background colour.

Matel was the only logo that used letters that all share the same characteristics in both fonts, had a lucky guess on it.
also the C in crate and barrel is not helvetica even tho the rest of the font is.

20/20 ... pretty easy. helvetica tends to be more even edged and slightly more bold. The obvious letters are c, a, G, 3, etc

I got to 18.

Felt all the lowercase/numeral ones were a piece of piss. Some of the capitals were a bit of luck though.

is this a thing?

have the strongly worded letters I've been penning to my lady friend been unsuccessful in their friend zone emancipation due to my childish inability to resist arial's seductive ways?

This makes me feel better about using Ariel instead of Helvetica because I'm not a mac fanboi.

Helvetica squares off the ends of their lower case letters which is the easiest difference I find. Capitals is a challenge!

You'd be just guessing to pick the MATTEL or TOYOTA I think.

The M is wider in Mattel, and the O is rounder/closer to a circle in Toyota.

more proof in the superiority of the Arial Race. Send the Helveticans to camps!
