Featuring interviews with many of the world's most influential graphic designers, Helvetica looks at the proliferation of the ubiquitous font on the 50th anniversary of its creation. Developed in 1957 for the Haas Type Foundry, the typeface quickly spread around the world amidst a wave of popularity for Swiss design. (90 mins., video)
