Seen with our class, 2 really interesting documentaries from Gary Hustwit which you have to watch if you're interested in design and graphic design! -Trailers just below-
Objectified, from director Gary Hustwit (Spring 2009), is about industrial design, and the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It's about the people who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It's about our relationship to mass-produced objects and, by extension, the people who design them.
Helvetica, released first (March 2007), is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface, which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007, as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. ( Too bad I don't have it as a choice in my font list here..)
