The Helvetica documentary film

Video celebrates the 50th birthday of Helvetica.

Film director Gary Hustwit has created a film titled “Helvetica” that documents the proliferation of “one typeface” and it’s impact on culture, design, and our lives.

The full length film is available now on Blu-Ray DVD for $26.

More information about the film and Director is on their website at

Although I’ve not seen the film yet (going to order the DVD today!) it looks like a must watch for anyone involved in creative work and fonts.

There is value in preserving the rich history of design, particularly when a design has the far reaching influence as Helvetica, and this film appears to be a good step in that direction.
