‧‧‧ One of 808

There are movies about everything, carmanufacturers as well as bizarre sea animals, but about font types?

Now here is one by a swiss artist about the Helvetica font: the Helvetica film.



It’s a film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture, an exploration of urban spaces in major cities and the type that inhabits them, and a fluid discussion with renowned designers about their work, the creative process, and the choices and aesthetics behind their use of type.
As 2007 is the fiftieth birthday of the Helvetica font, it’s the right movie in the right place.

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible.
