This is an amazing film for designers and the general public alike. Highly recommended.
Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which recently celebrated its 50th birthday) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. Helvetica is currently screening at film festivals, museums, design conferences, and cinemas worldwide and is available on DVD.
Did the Helvetica film change my life? Well, no but it was pretty damn cool and great to understand the perspectives of Helvetica lovers and hater alike. It did, however, lead me spend about $250.00. online on font and graphics design books!
