Screw Helvetica

If I have to look at one more logo in Helvetica or Arial I am going to loose my last thousand lunches in one fell swoop. Fuck the Swiss design school, fuck the dehumanizing clean lines, the oh so mind numbing utilitarianism of it all. While we are at it

If I have to look at one more logo in Helvetica or Arial I am going to loose my last thousand lunches in one fell swoop. Fuck the Swiss design school, fuck the dehumanizing clean lines, the oh so mind numbing utilitarianism of it all. While we are at it: fuck Bauhaus architecture and all it's bastard children And to that genius architect, whoever you are, what on earth gave you the idea that sticking (soon to be rusted)corrugated steel on perfectly sensible old buildings is ever a good idea? Are you so utterly blinded by your own mediocrity that you cannot see that your effort are far from timeless, that they will be bulldozed in a matter of years, that they are pedantic and already out of date?

Are you the same hack who build that monstrosity across from the Hydrostone (you know the one which looks like a Hell's angel bunker) ? If so, retire now before you wreck one more neighbourhood with your incompetent interpretation of a design philosophy which has had its day and which now should be shelved for eternity. Fuck Helvetica
