Sylvia and I have been watching and thoroughly enjoying Severance, a mysterious horror/satire that addresses late-stage capitalism and the banal inhumanity of office life. And in a clever bit of viral marketing, you can now create your own custom Lumon business card
--even if the thought of working at Lumon fills you with dread, as it should.
Helvetica + Eurostile = shrieking horror for me, so if that was you goal then mission accomplished.
The only other place you will see this combination is at the National Film Board of Canada, provided you bring along some paper money. The NFB logo uses Helvetica, while our currency has some Eurostile in it. Someone obviously immune to culture or elegance in the pre-millennial government was a horrific, soul-less monster with enough pull to get these typefaces entrenched into cherished Canadian institutions.
