Happy Birthday Helvetica

by Matt 6. November 2007 18:19

Oh wow. Just sitting in front of the telly and on comes a documentary about Helvetica. Yep, the font. I have a minor obsession with typefaces; they're a secret that's staring people in the face, one which most are completely oblivious to. But I know that someone has agonised over every single curve and line. It's nice to step into their world, become a part of the secret, while idly looking at a sign or advert or logo. And now primetime(-ish) TV is indulging my geeky little pastime. This is why I pay my license fee.

RE: Happy Birthday Helvetica

What gave it away? Was it the use of the semi-colon?
