Before watching the film I had no Idea that Helvetica was used everywhere for everything.  One man in the video referred to it as being the “Off white” of typefaces and said that “Its just there”.  Its unbelievable how this typeface was created for legibility over 50 years ago and is still so popular today.  I wonder how long it will take before Helvetica will cease to exist but my guess is no time soon.  It really is a wonderfully constructed font that is clean and very easy on the eyes.
