+Helveticunt – products for type nerds

Back to Blogs

I was working on a design the other night that involved Helvetica and as I experimented with the typeface, the elitism and snobbery that can surround Helvetica came to mind. Don’t get me wrong, I love Helvetica and am an avid user of the typeface; still, the rabid love for the sleek typeface is as comical as the love [some have] for Papyrus or Comic Sans.

Arguments and debates about Helvetica can get pretty heated and generally someone comes off as a wanker or cunt (including myself). As a result, I present: Helveticunt.

I loved it so much, I had to make a T-shirt and am contemplating the mug. If you want to wear your font-cuntery with pride, pick a shirt or hat up from Zazzle (preview below). Since the word is PG-13, you may need to login to Zazzle to view all the products.
