Helvetica movie

Tuesday 6 February 2007

I know this sounds like a joke, but it isn’t: Helvetica is a documentary about the typeface Helvetica. Actually, it’s about more than that:

Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which is celebrating its 50th birthday this year) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives.

I’m definitely going to go see it, if it ever shows in a theater near me, I just don’t know if anyone will go see it with me!


Hey! Of course I'll go with you! What am I, chopped liver?
You both are amazing!
Someday someone is going to have to write about computer programmers (I'm guilty of this, too) who need blogs to talk to their wives. :) Anyhow it looks like there are a couple screenings in Boston although it's not clear if they're open to the general public.
I should really get out more - Let me know when and where (if I haven't already missed it).
