Helvetica encompasses the worlds of design, advertising, psychology, and communication, and invites us to take a second look at the thousands of words we see every day. Focusing on the proliferation of a single typeface that celebrates its 50th birthday in 2007, the film examines the larger context of how type affects our lives.
