2007 was HELVETICA’s 50th birthday.
Throughout the summer of 2007, Linotype put out the call for posters created with the Helvetica typeface.
And ArabAd had a long feature on the a half-decade history of the font.
Hundreds of entries were submitted; visitors to Linotype.com were able to vote for their favorite designs.
Now the Winners are out!!
& Guess What?
the 3rd Winner is a Lebanese national!! Isn’t that Absolutely Wonderful??

Loaded below are our favourite [actually the Lebanese participants who made it in the 30 best line-up;
but you check can all Top 30 Posters displayed at Lino.
Linotype also, rewarded some designs that didn’t make it to the final;
however, as encouragement for several posters that showed
great typographic know-how, wit, and a strong conceptual level,
a special honourary mention was given to the designs that deserved it.
