The documentary Helvetica is about how well known the type face Helvetica is, and how frequently it is used. It is also about how it was created and what the font is meant for. For example, the font is used for complete legibility and uniform spacing, yet it is boring by how simple and robotic it looks.
What I lie about the documentary is when it demonstrates how typefaces were made back before the use of the computer. Also the documentary displays examples of how Helvetica is used in professional works. Lastly what I found interesting about the documentary, is that someone said that Helvetica was basically a default font. Usually because whenever I open up a program like, Microsoft Word, the default typeface is Calibri.
