Helvetica the Movie

HelveticaMovie
So I have been using some of my holiday free time to make my way through my Netflix backlog nd finally got my hands on a copy of Helvetica. For those of you who don’t know it’s a documentary film by Gary Hustwit that takes the main title type faces as uses it to look at typography, graphic design, and global visual culture. I really recommend that any designer take the time to watch this because it is an interesting study of the current state of global design as well as talking to a lot of the key type and graphic designers. It will probably bore the wife or girlfriend to tears but if you can get you can get a copy it’s really worth watching.
