Poster Series: Typeface 

Brief

Select three typefaces, create a black and white poster utilizing all three typefaces, explore the history and associations of each typeface, represent this in a cohesive poster series, following the poster series create a series of booklets that incorporated the process and research using a grid apparent layout, non-grid apparent layout and an outrageous page layout. 

Approach

I selected the typefaces Didot, Akzidenz Grotesk and Din Stencil. Through my process I experimented with photographing type and layering information. I wanted to evoke a sense of motion by choosing sound words that were reminiscent of each typefaces history. This poster series recieved the Design Excellence Award at Arizona State University.
