So I just got back from seeing Helvetica at IFC, and I really enjoyed it, with sharp observations by Michael Bierut, the intensity of Erik Spiekermann, and a humorous, and not drunk David Carson just to name a few.
Here are my personal highlights.
-Massimo Vignelli’s studio.
-Lars Müller pointing at Helvetica signs in what looks like a smock.
-Paula Scher sitting way to far away from her computer.
-Erik Spiekermann’s soldier helmet comment.
-David Carson’s third date, first date joke.
Although, like the movie Munich, I left not knowing what side I was supposed to empathize with.
