Helvetica


I just saw a very interesting episode of Independent Lens on PBS about the font Helvetica. Look for it.

Who knew a font had such a history. Moreover, how this font has had such an impact, possibly, on how we think about things.

BTW, head over to Aaron's blog for a kiki about the use of fonts. I suggest you click on the image on his blog to get the full picture.

Check out the documentary Helvetica, too. It's pretty interesting and on iTunes.

The GH is a font-whore so I was directing him to Aaron's site to check it out. I will let him know to look you up as well.
