Typography Explorations

A Futura Type Specimen poster showcasing different fonts in the Futura family. 

Futura is a geometric typeface design by Paul Renner in 1927. The recognizable shapes of the letters gives an appearance of efficiency. It is clean and stylish but still legible at small point size. It is also the first typeface to land on the moon! Used on the commemorative plaque left on moon in July 1969. 

A series of book cover exercises using different fonts in Grotesque MT family.  The book Paris Moscou features different artists such as Man Ray, Piet Zwart, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. The exercise helped me better understand typography through shapes, space, and contrast.
