Helvetica turns 50

Inspired by the occasion, Gary Hustwit has produced and directed Helvetica – which must be the first feature-length documentary about a single typeface. Shot in the United States, England, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France and Belgium, the film includes interviews with Erik Spiekermann, (the excellent) Wim Crouwel, Neville Brody, Stefan Sagmeister, David Carson, Norm, Experimental Jetset and many more… The film is currently in post-production, but should be released early this year.
