Helveticurse swear jar

Helveticurse is the exploration of a glossary-type website that contrasts the neutrality of Helvetica with the offensiveness of English curse words. Related content is pulled from Google, Wikipedia and Twitter.

Helveticurse is a CHEDONLINE project and is designed and developed with love and curiosity by Charles Lim aka Ched. It was inspired by sites like Newswordy and films like Helvetica.
