Why are we saying goodbye?
Helvetica is a good font!
(Also you should know now that I thought it would be appropriate to write this blog post in Helvetica. You're welcome.)
Upon further reading of the site, I found that the "goodbye" to the typeface had come after a long, committed 1-year relationship.
Dominique Falla, the writer of the blog, used Helvetica in every design she made (minus client designs) for a whole year.
As a designer, she thought that the challenge would push her. Helvetica is such a beautifully designed typeface, which brings it popularity. Falla says that her time spent with a single typeface refined her skills, and she enjoyed not having to pick and choose a typeface every time she started a new design.
According to Dominique, the year was a success, and she thoroughly enjoyed proving, "... how beautiful this cold and emotionless typeface can be if it is treated with some love, care, and attention."
Domonique Falla is a very seasoned and talented designer. I encourage you to check out her website.
