Helvetica – the movie

Whilst i am in a geeky mood, i saw this on Lola’s blog and found it absolutely wonderful – a movie about a font! Lola says the DVD is coming out at the end of September! :) :)

From Helvetica – A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit:

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 love Helvetica; it is simple and elegant, one of my favourite fonts, along with Verdana and Trebuchet.
