« Found Helvetica Friday: Danger of Death |
| Out of stock »
It's the question on everyone's lips. It's 4.30pm. The film starts at 6.30pm. Our director is stuck in traffic between Dublin and Belfast.

I don't mind admitting this was something of a nerve-racking moment for me. No director, no copy of the film, around 100 people attending… nightmare.
At one point we were considering screening 'Borat - Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' if Gary didn't show up (we had a copy to hand to test the lecture theatre's sound). An ironic choice as it turned out, as Gary informed me that Luke Geissbuhler was director of photography on both 'Borat' and 'Helvetica'. Small world indeed.
As Richard will hopefully report later, we found our missing director and all in all the event proved to be a big success. Thanks to everyone who supported us, you made it the success it was, and well done to our three typeface winners.
Given the success, we're considering underwriting further event like this via Fallt, if you have any suggestions for who you'd like to see in Belfast, please do get in touch.

Some graffiti can occaisionally hold some eye-catching font style qualities.
On the side of a big-box food store I saw ** God is coming **.
Then in smaller text just below it.. .
** And he*s bringing doughnuts and coffee. **
A cheery message and easy to read as well. = TG
