Helvetica - The Film
Last night, Stacy and I went to see the Indie-film Helvetica at the IMA (Indianapolis Museum of Art). The film is an in-depth conversation into the history and importance of the type-face, Helvetica. As one of the few non-design professionals in attendance, I found the film to be more of a discussion between elite designers than a historical representation. It did open my eyes to how often Helvetica is used in society, but I disagree with the core theme of the film, which is, Clean design uses Helvetica, but Grunge design does not.
