Typefaces of the world

In design

Fifty of the most commonly used typefaces in graphic design were used to construct an informational poster. Organized into two sides, categorized by country of origin (American on one side and European on the other), and alphabetized, the name of each typeface is repeated continuously to create the blocks of color in each portrait. Each typeface creates the portrait of the designer who created it. A small legend is included to provide additional details for each typeface like the designer’s name and year it was designed.
