I recently had the pleasure of watching a documentary called ‘The Helvetica Film’ and boy did I enjoy it! I think its a must see for every designer. The title basically describes the overall summary of the movie but trust me, it’s very informative and features some of the best typography designers the world has ever seen. I even picked up a lot about Swiss design and the impact they had on the world of design as well as how design changed in the 1950’s. Like I said before “A MUST SEE”, You can find out more about the movie at http://www.helveticafilm.com
So while we’re on the topic of Helvetica, Take a look at these awesome playing cards by Designer Ryan Myers. He created a set of playing cards for the typophile and gambler. I know I’d hit the poker tables more often if casinos started using these badboys.
Helveticards are minimalist typographic playing cards, and an alternative to traditional decks of cards.
