Akzidenz Grotesk Poster Series
"the father of all neo-grotesk fonts"
In our third project for typography, we became experts of an assigned typeface. During the course of this project we learned every aspect of the font's anatomy in addition to the history of the designer. We then created two posters as a series to function as a set to inform anyone about our font. The first poster in the set specified twelve unique characteristics of our font that makes it notable; while the second poster informs the viewer about the historical context of the font. I was assigned the sanserif typeface Akzidenz Grotesk.
Below is a series of explorations of designs prior to landing on my final posters.
