Type Anatomy Poster
This project was an initiative to create a set of educational tools with the intention of helping design students solidify their knowledge of typography terminology.
There are three parts to the set, a reference poster, a set of 36 definition notecards, as well as a typeface classification sheet. The formation of knowledge is started with the notecards, and the poster is used for reference when the knowledge has been set.
The set is cohesive, using the same swatches, typefaces, and styles throughout the set. Bookmania Semibold was chosen as the display typeface for its unique serifs that convey a friendly character as well as provide a clear platform to distinguish features of typography. Effra Bold was chosen as the description typeface for its ability to remain legible at small sizes.
