Helvetica - typeface of our times

Helvetica (2007) is a compelling documentary from Gary Huswit about the popular post-war typeface 'Helvetica' , designed to provide clear and neutral communication. It reached that goal so particularly well that it became a symbol of our times. Its widespread use on the other hand,  feeds the discussion about whether a typeface should have a personality on itself. A question well explored throughout the film.

An enteraining and witty documentary, not only for designers or type nerds.
