    Three Poster Series
  • The purpose of this project was to create three broadside posters with a similar theme using typography as the dominant element. Three typefaces were chosen and had to be represented in three different ways. I chose a typeface from three different time periods and matched them with an architectural style that related to them. From there I distinguished the similar elements between the typeface and the architectural style, found a piece of architecture that was finished around the same time period, and created invitations to those said openings using the typeface and design style of the time period. Each poster follow the same grid layout and stays true to not only the time period but also the country and language. 
    On each poster you will find the invitation heading, date, time, architect, and building name. The next section contains a "speech" that the host would give to his guests with information about the building, the inspiration, and design. The next section details the elements that the typeface and architectural style have in common. It then goes on to give a brief history of the typeface. At the very bottom a printing company is named.
