I finally had a chance to see Helvetica, the movie. I absolutely loved it. My favorite part was when Lars Mueller walked Gary and his team through the streets of London (?) pointing at helvetica sightings. I agree with his statement that “Helvetica is the perfume of the city!”
Erik Spiekermann was priceless. His comments made me laugh out loud.
Hat tip to Gary Hustwit and his team. He was at the screening and answered questions. What a warm, funny, down to earth guy. Refreshing to see that he managed to stay so humble, considering the amazing and well-deserved success of his documentary!
