have you got a song in your head?

helvetica actually looks good on the NY subway. it’s the only place it looks good. yes i’m going on record here, it’s not as good as you think it is everyone. all the letters look the same and it’s been the default choice of people without a clue since the ‘80s. so most of the times it’s used it looks awful. move on.

    Ah well, at least there’s one place it looks good. I’m pleased you’ve gone on the record. I’m a little over all the Helvetica nuts. There’s something a little un-natural about a love affair with a font as boring as that.

    Mind you, this is coming from someone who gets excited by the mere mention of Battlestar Galactica and Abba. I know….. I have absolutely no cred.

    Helvetica is a wondrous thing. It’s the Ikea of fonts, it brings design to the masses. You just gotta get the kerning right.

    Moving on ? Yes. Have you met DIN or Frutiger ? Lovely stuff.

  • Woah, Frutiger is eeeexpensive.

    I’m going on record: I am not over Helvetica—yet. And that’s a choice, not my default choice. I even watched the entire movie/fontumentary.
    Nice shot, btw.
