I don’t know how many of you have gotten a chance to see the documentary film Helvetica. It was released a couple of years ago and focuses around the origin of the font Helvetica, the history of graphic design and shows the viewpoints of Pro- and Anti- Helvetica designers.

Now I know you are asking yourself “How could a movie about a font be interesting?” Well maybe it was just me, but I truly enjoyed hearing designers talk about what they do. I think this movie is a must-see for any designer out there.

Do you get kicks out of looking at type too?
