Dot Zero was a quarterly by Unimark in partnership with Finch Paper that focused on the theory and practice of visual communication. Only five issues were published between 1966 and 1968, and Massimo Vignelli was the designer and creative director of the magazine. Vignelli wanted to make the design exciting, but simple, so he set all type in only two weights of Helvetica and everything printed in black and white.
Michael Bierut interviewed Vignelli about the magazine. Some nice insights on how the publication came about, and its production.
Font Men is a short documentary, directed & produced by Dress Code, about Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones, and their world of type. Obviously shot before their public break-up. Really nice motion graphics, too.
