The Visual Language of Herbert Matter

The Visual Language of Herbert Matter is a new documentary film about the iconic graphic designer, Herbert Matter. In my opinion, Matter helped define modern graphic design by combining avant garde photography with sophisticated color, shape and typography. I hope the film brings Matter's prolific career to life.

I have been dying to see the film since I first heard about and watched the award-winning trailer, which mixes historical graphic design with cutting edge film editing. The film is made by PiXiU Films and filmed by Swiss filmmaker Reto Caduff.

I get shivers (the good kind) just watching the trailer. When is it coming to Chicago?
