Posted in Method to the Madness by Ryan Thomas on March 24, 2009

I’m sure you have seen this by now, but in case you haven’t:

No idea on the credits, the who’s or the whys, I just thought I would share.

*Update*

Ryan Bannon an art director here in Toronto wanted you to know, there is a mole skin collectors edition of Helvetica:

The why’s are simple, in the typography community particularly the Type Design community she who is the dorkiest (and I mean this in the manic genius kind of way) wins. If that means owning the special edition blu-ray disc of Helvetica or even more importantly the limited edition commemorative moleskine http://nubbytwiglet.com/blog/2008/12/21/moleskine-helvetica-edition/ you win. Plain and simple. So, if you missed out on your opportunity to get your grubby paws on either what are you forced to do? Take the two dorkiest things possible, (an obsession with type and the periodic table of the elements) fuse them together in to one monolithic ode to your geekdom and claim your prize.
