PEOPLE MAKE THE WORLDPosted by on Monday 23rd April, 2007
I was invited to take part in a project to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the font Helvetica (even typefaces get birthday parties these days !). 50 designers were allocated a specific year from the last 50 and asked to pick an inspirational event and illustrate it somehow. I think I drew the short straw when I was given 2006, in my research all i could find was death, war and disaster. Then I discovered Warren E Buffet, the 3rd richest man in the US who made a massive donation to a charity that is trying to find a cure for aids. I know it’s easy to say well he’s got all the money he’ll ever need and it wont make any difference to his life – but I don’t care, I think it is impressive and inspiring.
