Helvetica - the film.

Wow, just got done watching the Helvetica documentary.

I consider myself a type geek, but I now realize my interest in letters is rudimentary at best.

The film interviews many high profile designers, as they explore the history of fonts, and Helvetica in particular.

Being a self-trained designer, the segment with David Carson was the most interesting to me.

If you have any appreciation for fonts and letterforms (or design in general), this is a must-see.
