I have been an admirer of York-based graphic designer and writer Daniel Benneworth-Gray‘s for a while now — be it his beautifully simple, mathematical book covers or the captivating articles in his long-standing blog.
Directed by Gary Hustwit, and released in 2007, Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface, the legendary Helvetica, as part of a bigger picture as to how type affects our culture. It also delves into the history of the sans serif typeface, which was developed in 1957 by Swiss graphic designer Max Miedinger. #helvetica #font #typography #design
