Design Film Series at IMA

From typefaces to toys to buildings – enjoy a documentary film series dedicated to the wide world of graphic, product and building design. All films begin at 6:00 pm. Presented in part by the IMA Design Arts Society. Series made possible with support from the Evans Woollen Fund. Enjoy IMA’s Happy Hour after the film.

(2007, 80 minutes, dir. Gary Hustwit)

How did a typeface created by a little-known Swiss designer in 1957 become one of the most popular communication modes fifty years later? Helvetica is about the worlds of design, advertising, psychology, and communication. The film is an exploration of urban spaces and the type that inhabits them. The film includes a fluid discussion with renowned designers about the graphic design process, the aesthetics behind type choices and the social impact type makes. (Introduced by Kristian Andersen of Kristian Andersen & Associates. In collaboration with AIGA Indy.

The film is fun, saw it a few months ago. Even for non-designers, it is a statement on culture, media and communication.
