Helvetica at 50: Happy Birthday to a font?

Helveticanews

Yes, the font Helvetica turns 50.  (read the complete story from the BBC)

Helvetica’s message is this: you are going to get to your destination on time; your plane will not crash; your money is safe in our vault; we will not break the package; the paperwork has been filled in; everything is going to be OK.

This font was designed not to be noticed, yet here we are celebrating its birthday.  Go figure.

  1. I have come to love the good ole Gill Sans font these days. Little more compact version of Helvetica.
