Problems With Helvetica:
While Helvetica is a great all round font there are some drawbacks. The main drawback is its overuse. With its widespread popularity people have become somewhat desensitized to the font so it does not catch the eye or stand out like other fonts. Arial is another popular font and it looks incredibly similar to Helvetica so this effect is increased even more so.
The font is also not very readable in small sizes (the letters begin to blend). This means it is not a good choice for the body of text in either print or online versions.
