Thank F**k for Helvetica Max Miedunger Typography Poster

    Newer Older

    My own personal celebration of the 50+ years of this sturdy typeface.

    So many personal celebratory typographic posters out there for Helvetica, felt the need to create my own celebratory poster, with my own words of wisdom. With a specific mention to Max Miedinger.

    My next Helvetica Poster one will mention the great man behind the greatest typeface of all time, Eduard Hoffmann.

    The main files are on Flickr at around 21cm wide @ 304dpi. Should anyone wish a larger version for printing, then just ask. The original file is all vector, so easy enough to scale up in Illustrator.

    Sometimes using expletives is just the right thing to do. Let’s not beat around the bush.

      hi Graham,
      I´m currently working on a book on helvetica and would like to quote your poster "thank fuck for helvetica". Is that ok?
      Would you please send me the original vector file to print out a copy?
      Thanks in advance,
