I like the route to Comic Sans.
I was disappointed not to find a route along the lines of:
Website > I want it to have the same font on every platform > here are the fonts that are universal.
That's what I'm saying :D
It kinda shoulda.
Have we all seen this?
Well, the abridged version that they showed on BBC1 (As part of imagine?, I think).
Anyway, it was alright, but I seem to remember that it irked me slightly, cos it wasn't really about Helvetica as such. It was more about Sans Serif in general. I could be wrong on this.
...you're absolutely right. It was more about the advent of the sans serif and its significance in modern design rather than a "Helvetica - This is Your Life" type thing. Very interesting though.
The guy who directed it also made another called "Objectified" which is about the world of product design and designers. Its more like an advert but still worth a look while you're waiting for your computer to load between renders or whatever.
(do-able without sound, but much better with sound)
