What would a typeface look like if it was human? "What a weird question", you might think. But this is not as crazy as it sounds: As a designer or someone who has already got in touch with typography, you know that every typeface has its character: It's got its own look, strengths and weaknesses. So why not transfer this to actual people? I analyzed each typeface, searched for people with the same characteristics, and took photographs of them. Along with these portraits, every chapter gives historical background information about the classification, shows the main attributes, shows an application from the streets of Nuremberg. and presents an exemplary typeface.
Created during the 2nd semester of graphic design at the university Georg Simon Ohm in Nuremberg, Germany.
