Font Series: III (Museum für Gestaltung)
If pictures are worth 1000 words, is a picture of a word (and a typeface at that) worth any more? This is of course the king of sans serif typefaces. Some people debate the superiority of Gill Sans, maybe Futura. Arial and Calibri have huge Microsoft-assisted prominance. But let’s all admit that Helvetica is amazing. And, more still, that Helvetica in a design museum in Zürich is better still, no?
