I still can’t believe that there is a movie about a typeface! I actually found it very interesting and fun. I had no idea how widely used Helvetica is. It can be found just about anywhere you look; it’s around every corner and used on every other sign. I often have a hard time liking and using a typeface that is cliche or “over-used”, but this movie made me see Helvetica a little differently. The reason it is so widely used is because it is effective and clear to read. I enjoyed learning the history of the type and where it came from. The movie, along with this class all semester long, has really made me see typography in a whole new way, with a new perspective; I definitely appreciate it much more.
