Helvetica
I saw a great documentary at the Film Festival last year, called Helvetica, which, as you can guess form the title, is all about said typeface. Helvetica celebrated its 50th birthday last year too. You can catch fresh screenings of Helvetica at the World Cinema Showcase which starts this week (check the schedule here). Go see it!

That is all.
