This One's For the Art Directors

I’m sure you’ve seen the white oval stickers people put on the backs of their cars to indicate the country they’re from. F for France. D for Deutschland. Well, the cars in Switzerland feature this sticker…

While it could justifiably stand for “chocolate,” it’s actually an abbreviation of Switzerland’s official name in Latin: Confoederatio Helvetica.

Helvetica! I’m living in a typeface!

You actually live in Helvetica land. That is pretty darn cool.
