Helbotica - Creative use of a well known typeface
Yeah i know we are all sick of hearing about Helvetica and how it is overused in all of our designs. It seems discouraging when watching the documentary and trying to overcome this inevitable sans-serif. I know at least some of us have used Helvetica in our designs (I know I have) but i recently was browsing the Internet and came across a blog that had this picture. I was amazed by it, I like this type robot. Creative usage of the letterforms to form robot parts was ingenious. It is also available for a design on a shirt for $25. Maybe I might pick up a shirt for myself. This gives me inspiration for fun projects I can do over the summer. Maybe create the arch nemesis Futura Robot. lol
Stay Tuned for more!
