Typeradio is very proud to present exclusively the very first interview with the typeface Helvetica. This is the first episode from the new series of interviews where Typeradio travels around the world to meet typefaces and to talk to them.
In this episode Helvetica showed up with his old friend Gert Dumbar to the theater opening of the Tragic Death of Helvetica, organized by students of the Royal academy in the Hague.

We are very honored to have the rare chance to meet this all-time classic, and to present this interview to you.

Ladies and gentlemen: please welcome Helvetica.
