Continuing in this vein ...
In yesterday's Guardian, AndrewDickinson interviewed Helvetica documentary maker Gary Hustwit. Some interesting facts:
- A huge H made out of Swiss cheese was created for a showing of the film in Philadelphia
- Helvetica is the font of the United Nations
- A Cyrillic variant of the font has been created.
The life of a designer is a life of fight, fight against ugliness, just like a doctor fights against disease.
Helvetica screens in Wellington on 27 and 29 July , as part of the International Film Festival.
