HELVETICA, THE MOVIE
“Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which will celebrate its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. Helvetica will begin screening at film festivals worldwide starting in early 2007.”
To many design professionals, including myself, the Helvetica typeface is probably one of the most important modern innovations in graphic design. I look forward to what this film has to offer as a window into not only the development and design of the typeface, but how it has influenced so many in our profession.
