Ugly Gerry

Link: Ugly Gerry

I’m always interested in how art becomes a means to communicate social and cultural movements. However, I’ve never seen a font used that way — until now.

Meet Ugly Gerry, a font made of gerrymandered congressional districts.

An image that says, "With Liberty and Justice for Some" written in a font created by congressional district shapes.

Helvetica Now

Monotype.com: Helvetica Now

This is the first major update to Helvetica in 35 years.

Helvetica® Now is a new chapter in the story of perhaps the best-known typeface of all time. Available in three optical sizes—Micro, Text, and Display—every character in Helvetica Now has been redrawn and refit; with a variety of useful alternates added. It has everything we love about Helvetica and everything we need for typography today. This is not a revival. This is not a restoration.

This is a statement.
