Arial or Helvetica

Everybody loves Helvetica. There’s even a movie out with its name. Some designers have expressed their unabashed love for it. Arial is just a sad knock off of it.

But can you tell the difference from the two?

I got 8/10. Not too bad, although Judatha might have something to say about that. After taking the quiz, check out this linked article.

If you’re into type, and you didn’t get a perfect score, you’ll be shaking your head at how obvious it is after reading the article.

Helvetica World Premiere

The film Helvetica just premiered at SXSW. Sounds like the movie went over pretty well.

Personally, I can’t wait to see this film. It looks like it’s going to be screened in Boston on April 11 at MassArt.
