Helvetica Man

Grabed this cool article in my RSS feed (feel free to sub up-just a small hint) this morning from the neat IDSGN blog, which they quote : “Long before modern icon libraries like Helveticons, designers and sign-makers were forced to use a mishmash of symbols. Until the Helvetica man came along…” Logo design for the rest of us.

Worth popping over to IDSGN and reading the post in full. Photos from IDSGN.
