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 www.HelveticaFilm.com
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.
