So, I was sitting in my Foundations of Graphic Design class one day, watching the documentary, Helvetica. As I listened to the designers preach about the perfection of Helvetica I made the proclamation that I would use only Helvetica for a year. I will move all the fonts from my computer to a server and leave only my Helvetica family. I want to see for myself. My supposition is that it is really the only typeface I will ever need. All my design, correspondence, and document creation will use the Helvetica family. I have no idea if I will even care in three weeks, so I will also be doing research about type hoping to understand the history of graphic design and type. So, on January 1st, 2012 I will move all my fonts to the server and start. Not sure what will come of this!!!
