INDEPENDENT LENS | Helvetica | Trailer | PBS

I produced this trailer for “Helvetica” for the nationally televised series Independent Lens on PBS, which is produced by the Independent Television Service (ITVS).

You can’t escape if you try — it’s on your computer, the subway, U.S. mailboxes, IRS tax forms, and spells out countless corporate logos from Target to Fendi. No doubt, Helvetica is the king of fonts. But why? To find the answer, first-time Director Gary Hustwit meets with historians and designers whose passion for typefaces run high, and discovers the secrets behind the fonts we use and read every day.

HELVETICA premieres Tuesday, January 6 on Independent Lens, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, Independent Lens is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide.
