An eye-opening documentary about typography and global visual culture, in celebration of the 50th birthday of the world’s most popular font (but Stanley Kubrick’s second favourite), the Swiss sans serif typeface Helvetica.

Including interviews with some of the most illustrious and innovative names in the design world, the film invites us to look with fresh eyes at the thousands of words we see every day.

Omnipresent in signage, advertising, and media, is Helvetica corporate chic or democratic design for everyone from airlines to cornershops?

UK 2007 Dir. Gary Hustwit 80 min.
