It’s now or never: Hhsf closes Monday!

Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’… This is how we imagine things went down: You opened up that email back in May – you know, the one inviting you to participate in the second annual Hhsf – and said to yourself, “Self, I could sure use some extra scratch,” and then, well…nuthin’. We cajoled. You procrastinated. We sent a reminder. You ignored us. Meanwhile, your classmates have already gotten in on the action, currying favor with the scholarship selection committee by submitting their applications well ahead of schedule. We know, we know: It can get awfully busy this time of [...]

Artist Series No. 4 Has Landed

New and in the Shop: Artist Series no. 4! The first step, they say, is acceptance – admitting you have a problem. And Lorri Johnston definitely has a problem. “I’m almost ashamed to admit it,” she says, “but I’m a font addict.” It got so bad she was bringing in unauthorized fonts from her home computer to work. And while she eventually had to fess up, it’s not entirely clear that she was actually remorseful about smuggling in rogue typefaces. “They’re…so pretty,” she says. “I just love them.” And she wants you to love them as well – especially Helvetica. [...]

Hhsf live!

Hey designers! Who’s ready to score some sweet, sweet cash? If you’re an incoming second-year graphic design student at Spokane Falls Community College – which of course you are, because we don’t send these emails to just anyone – then you’re already eligible for the Helveticahaus design scholarship! All that’s left to do is head on over to the official scholarship application page. What’s in it for you, you ask? Only $1,000 toward next year’s tuition, that’s all. Let’s do the math: Assuming you work 20 hours a week at a minimum-wage job, you’re taking home less than $200 a [...]

It’s Not Too Late. Yet…

You’ve waited. Put it off to the last possible minute. Procrastinated so hard that you’re almost to the point of having to finish your Christmas shopping at 7-11.

No matter who’s on your list this year, we have the perfect gift at the perfect price – like our brand-new canvas cross-body tote, the season’s must-have accessory for your hot yoga class.

Your One-Stop Holiday Shop

It’s official: We can talk about the holidays now. And whichever one you and yours are planning to celebrate, we’ve got you covered. No, seriously. Got a Buddhist cousin celebrating Bodhi Day on December 8? Be sure to quote the Karaniya Metta Sutta – “radiate boundless love toward the entire world” – when you send her this. Worried about the Hanukkah candles making a mess? Protect your furniture with a set of these. Not exactly looking forward to the “airing of grievances” this coming Festivus? Wearing one of these babies will shut your cranky uncle down. And keep in mind [...]

More Choices = More Awesome

If you’ve ever come to the Helveticahaus online shop and just couldn’t make up your mind…well, we’re afraid we have some bad news for you. The selection just got bigger. Five brand-new T-shirt designs have just been added to our inventory.  Which means that, with twelve originals, one student design, and three in our artist series, we’re now offering twenty-one unique, Helvetica-inspired graphic Tts! (We thought about adding more, but 21 is a Fibonacci number,* and our proprietors are very particular about maintaining some semblance of order and control in this chaotic world of ours. Even if it’s only temporary.) [...]
