Helvetica

Director: Gary Hustwit

Year Released: 2007

Helvetica is a film about typography and graphic design, centered around discussion of the font, Helvetica, itself. It was released in 2007, on the 50th anniversary of the typeface's release in 1957. It has awesome interviews with leading graphic and type designers, such as Massimo Vignelli, Rick Poynor, and Stefan Sagmeister. As a whole, Helvetica champions the beauty, ubiquity, and perfection of the font, in an entertaining and humorous way.
