Helvetica. It’s everywhere: this typeface spells out tax forms, labels, street signs and company logos.
More than half a century old, this ubiquitous font emcompasses the worlds of design, advertising, psychology and communication. HELVETICA explores the places, people and history of the font, revealing a new and surprising aspect of the thousands of words we see every day.
