Hhsf 2018-19

So. You’ve successfully navigated year one of SFCC’s graphic design program – that Byzantine labyrinth of classes, projects, and assignments that would cause even the heartiest of souls to despair. And you’re thinking to yourself, Self, I could sure use a break right about now.Don’t. Just…don’t.Instead, head on over to the official Helveticahaus scholarship application page for a chance to win $1,000 toward next year’s tuition – along with fame and glory and the respect of your peers. (But mainly the cash.)We’re not in the business of handing out a fat stack to just anyone, though, so we’ve established a single [...]

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. [...]

Has it really been 60 years?

June 1957. Graphic 57 trade fair, Lausanne, Switzerland. All along the Montreux Riviera the linden trees are in bloom, their bright, lemony fragrance thick in the air like the sweetest perfume – until evening, when the gentle southerly winds, fresh off of Lake Geneva, wash the city clean. Over the course of the two-week event, nearly a quarter of a million visitors walk through the exhibit hall, taking in the work of type foundries and graphic designers and commercial artists and printers. Some look for inspiration, some for trends. What they get instead is a front-row seat to history. For [...]
