Helvetica

As theoctothorpe previously mentioned, there's a new documentary about Helvetica in production.

To help fund the movie, the director has commissioned posters from three design studios [Experimental Jetset, Build, and Norm] - they're $350 for the set, not bad for a limited edition of 100. Even better, he's offered to put your name in the credits of the film if you sign up.



I think I'll hang the posters next to my Tillmans poster - the fonts match. Ah, typography. So clean... God only knows why this sort of thing has always been appealing, but why ask why when you can just enjoy it instead?
