Hey everyone! If you’ve been following news on my tumblr or twitter, you likely know of the desperate situation I’ve been in lately. Long-story-short, my computer stopped working, and my livelihood took a pretty intense blow from it. I’ve since been able to acquire a new laptop, but I’m still waiting on all of my data from my old hard drive to be recovered so that I can get back up to 100%. Thanks to EVERYONE who has chipped in to help out, I’m so deeply grateful to all of you.

My dear friend Rachael has also offered to help out by creating this wonderful Helvetica paper doll for everyone to enjoy at a pay-what-you-want price. You can purchase/download the doll on gumroad below!


An important quality to have in the afterlife is a distinct sense of style. Unfortunately, Helvetica doesn’t really have one of those. But you can help him with this nifty paper doll!

  • This paper doll is completely free of charge, and you are welcome to pay any amount you please, or not at all. Any & all proceeds will support the creation of HELVETICA and the artist & writer, J.N. Wiedle. Thanks so much!
After purchase, you will receive a PDF of the paper doll. It’s recommended that you print onto some form of card stock, so that the doll can stand up properly. Or you can use something like a popsicle stick to give the doll some backbone (no i didnt just make a skeleton pun no not at all what are you looking at)
Drafted by the wonderful, skilled, and generous Rachael Cohen for your enjoyment.

I bet Lucy’s been sitting on that line thing for a looong time. Finally, his cleverness can be appreciated. (Or not, but the looks of it.)
