Happy Birthday Helvetica!!! May 10, 2007

Filed under: art,Birthday — dezzychick @ 5:47 pm

As a graphic designer- I pay attention to typography. I think I am plagued with critiquing every design I see from this day on. Today just happens to be a certain fonts 50th birthday! Helvetica is among the most widely used sans-serif typefaces internationally. OH HELVETICA! Look at you! Today I salute you! You are always there when I need you! You are not just one of those thousands of fonts no one knows – you are definitely one of the most “respectable” default fonts in my opinion.

Tonight there is a birthday party for Helvatica at The Creative Tree House! We will be there for sure 🙂

I made this card for you!!

happy birthday helvetica

So lately I have been getting a lot of questions and requests for some etch a sketch art. Etch a sketch art is a weird talent of mine. For some reason I just pick it up and can draw pretty much anything on it. I was thinking about maybe having/being a part of a local art show. So I guess this is just me thinking out loud. I hear there is a way to preserve the art after you are finished – I am sure how to do that. I am on a mission to find out though! 🙂 My love for etch a sketch is not a recent thing. In middle school I always had one in my locker, high school I had one of those mini etch a sketch pens in my purse…as my purse size grew I started carrying a medium size one! I may or may not have a problem, ok! 🙂 In college (I went for graphic design) my whole portfolio show was based around an etch a sketch theme. Ok ok I am done! I just think it’s funny. In Justines words -“That is so analog” We go to coffee shops sometimes she sits down with her lap top and I sit there with my etch a sketch. 🙂 Here are a couple examples. They are pretty old, but for some reason I never take pictures of them! I will start 🙂
