Mike Parker--a legendary typographer, type designer, and historian who is perhaps best known for his work giving the world Helvetica--died Sunday night. He was 85.
Mike Parker helped popularize Helvetica as it appears in every computer, on every train station, and every tax form that you will ever receive. He literally has changed the world as it has been written. Remembering his contribution to this world and how it will forever be rememebered.
