A Type Specimen for the future.
 
Brief
Design a Type Specimen that showcases at least one font family from each section of Monotype’s chosen new and classic releases:
New
• Agmena
• Metro Nova
• Egyptian Slate
Classics
• Trade Gothic Next
• Stempel Garamond
• ITC Bodoni

The idea
Each font family represents a different generation. Egyptian Slate stands for Generation X and Trade Gothic Next for Generation Y. Through out the type specimen there is a dialogue between the two generations/fonts. On the one hand there is the narcissistic Generation Y and on the other hand Generation X provoking GenY to take the world in its own hands.
The type specimen is made using Indesign’s Digital Publishing Suite and is fully functional in tablets and smartphones
 
What follows are both the pages, before and after the interaction.
