The Horizon Helvetica® is whimsically dubbed the “Swiss army knife” of sketch tools, with as many as 12 unique tools integrated into its card-shaped design. The name Helvetica comes from the Latin word for ‘Swiss’, where the font was originally developed in 1957. Just like the font Helvetica, the sketching tool is incredibly versatile, user-friendly, and has the potential to be handy to practically anyone! (The company even made a deal with Monotype to use the Helvetica name for their equally versatile and designer-centric device)

A personal sidekick for anyone with a penchant for sketching, the Horizon Helvetica® lets you sketch and even measure out your drawings for accurate representation. It allows you to draw perfect circles, straight lines, arcs, and even isometric objects. Measurements on the side let you work with metric and imperial units, and there are even dedicated measurement markings for pixels and picas, allowing graphic designers and interface designers to create UI sketch prototypes on paper before taking their concepts into Figma, Sketch, Illustrator, or any other design software.
