Jessica Helfand

John Stossel on Graphic Design


This film was made in 2005 for 20/20, a beloved AIGA National Conference segment in which twenty designers are asked to talk about something for one minute each. This particular year, the conference itself had no theme, leaving Jessica Helfand no choice but to write a script for John Stossel, co-host, with Elizabeth Vargas, of the ABC-TV program, 20/20.

Am I not picking up on some sort of joke? This seemed more like mockery than anything else.

Is there really bad typefaces? or just a joke for the common use of comic sans?

this is funny. and this website is great.

and @Carla Oliveira there isn't a such thing as a bad typeface its all opinion, it's just that common opinion get called fact.
I remember talking to someone saying that when i was younger Comic Sans was the best thing in the world I used type homework with it! fast forward a couple years and I hate it and think its hideous! I dont what it is! the serifs, the proportions?
