Happy Birthday Helvetica!


A former coworker of mine emailed me an article about this exhibition at the MoMA celebrating Helvetica's 50th Anniversary. I guess more of an inside joke as we all had a hard time with our designer who used the most inappropriate fonts (and way too many of them) whenever designing anything simple or not. It used to drive me crazy and many people couldn't understand why I would get so bent out of shape about fonts. And size. And negative space (or lack of). I would take it personally and loose sleep over it. I once suggested Helvetica but was never appreciated as an idea...I love its simplicity and it generally looks so comforting. Anyway, here is the article.
