About the Film
Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography,
graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the
proliferation of one typeface (which will celebrate its 50th birthday
in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects
our lives. The film is an exploration of urban spaces in major cities
and the type that inhabits them, and a fluid discussion with renowned
designers about their work, the creative process, and the choices and
aesthetics behind their use of type.
Helvetica encompasses the worlds of design, advertising, psychology,
and communication, and invites us to take a second look at the
thousands of words we see every day.
Interviewees in Helvetica include some of the most illustrious and
innovative names in the design world, including Erik Spiekermann,
Matthew Carter, Massimo Vignelli, Wim Crouwel, Hermann Zapf, Neville
Brody, Stefan Sagmeister, Michael Bierut, David Carson, Paula Scher,
Jonathan Hoefler, Tobias Frere-Jones, Experimental Jetset, Michael C.
Place, Norm, Alfred Hoffmann, Mike Parker, Bruno Steinert, Otmar
Hoefer, Leslie Savan, Rick Poynor, Lars Müller, and many more.
