Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Helvetica

Film #32 of '08 was Helvetica.

You rated this 3 stars, but no comments? I found this one a little mediocre myself even though the subject matter was fascinating (I'm a baby graphic designer, and a bit obsessed with typography).

Yeah I kinda copped out on this post :-p. I thought the topic was interesting but the film meandered quite a bit, especially towards the end. I do find myself walking around pointing out Helvetica signs now though so maybe it stuck with me more than I expected.
