Helvetica, a documentary film by Gary Hustwit, is about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) and how it and other types affect our lives. The film explores urban spaces in major cities and the type that inhabits them. It also contains discussions with renowned designers about their work, the creative process, and the choices and aesthetics behind their use of type.
