‘Hellvetica’ sheds new light on the classic font
What do you get when combine stop-motion photography, flames and a typography assignment? You get two dedicated students practicing for hours to perfect the strokes on camera.
The precision in which these two complete the letterforms are quite accurate. Sure some of the curves are a little shaky, but come on its not like they could use French curves on it. It’s one part typographic homage and one part performance art piece. It just makes me wonder what her classmates projects looked like.
Helvetica has been a font of choice for many a designer since its creation in 1957 by Swiss typographers Max Miedinger with Eduard Hoffmann.
Thus concludes pyro week. Hope you enjoyed it!
