Typography

I was doing some research today for inspiration.
After a while I realized that I had found some awesome inspirational material referring to typography and thought that it would be great to pass on all this beauty in addition with a great typography documentary suggestion (thanx to my friend akis for this) !
I hope you find them interesting! ;)

1. Helvetica, a documentary film by Garry Hustwit



As stated in the website:
"Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. The film is an exploration of urban spaces in major cities and the type that inhabits them, and a fluid discussion with renowned designers about their work, the creative process, and the choices and aesthetics behind their use of type. "

2. A great typography publication found @ www.fontshop.com/


download

3. Pentagram "Find what type are you" application:
