Let’s nerd out. Font style. Ready? Back when I was in middle school, I remember my favorite font was Palatino, closely followed by Apple Chancery. Yes, APPLE CHANCERY. Oh, the shame! Our school had some very old Apple computers that had like 5 font options on them, and my least favorite was easily Helvetica. It just seemed so boring.
What an animal I was. Helvetica, though simple in its form, deserves its place in the Type Hall of Fame (does such a thing exist yet?). A bit modern, most definitely hipster, Helvetica has certainly had a renaissance in recent years. It makes vintage photos look contemporary, and simple statements like “I love you” seem bold. Here, I rounded up some of my favorite prints and other curiosities that feature Helvetica.
And a special treat for you too! How long have we all obsessed over the ‘Oh Darling, Let’s Be Adventurers’ print? For me, it’s been no less than a year and a half. Well, I happened to connect with the creator of the print, the lovely Izabella from the shop Fifi du Vie. She’s giving all you lambs 20% off anything in her store…so hop to it! Just use the code FDVMAC20 when you check out. The code is good through next Wednesday, 8/1 . Will you use it on a print, a tote bag, or maybe even a few greeting cards? What the hell, right? …It’s Helvetica!
