Rick Wolff, a freelance graphic designer from Havertown, PA according to his Twitter profile, created his own #Hillvetica font (a wordplay on Hillary and the common Helvetica font) after Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign unveiled its logo, website and video on Sunday.

A Rorschach Test for the Hillary Clinton Presidential campaign
What do you see? Since launch, Hillary Clinton’s logo has received criticism for its simplicity. Some think it’s a rip-off of the FedEx logo, or even a Hospital Sign you would see while driving down the road.
Rick Wolff’s new font is getting more praise on social media than Hillary’s logo. The Twittersphere, political geeks and graphic designers are wondering when they can download and get Hillvetica in their own hands.
The press is already asking Rick for interviews – and some Twitter users are asking how they can make a donation to Rick’s work. Talk about a quick way to his own 15-minutes of fame!
Barack Obama’s famous poster ripped off Ché Guevara – and America cheered.
Hillary Clinton campaign hires a third grader to use MS Paint – and America booed.
