Earlier in the MFA program, I had a type class where I had to design a series of type posters, that both explained and showcased typography in a single glance. I was tasked with choosing 3 typefaces and creating posters to explain that typeface. I went with Futura, Didot and Clarendon.
I did 3 posters. One on a Didone (Didot), a Lineale (Future) and a Slab Serif (Clarendon). I chose a letter, in this case the A to showcase large. I also made sure to have the full alphabet and a short description of each one so you learn a little bit more about the typeface.
Lastly, I chose a different color for each poster, but 3 colors that worked well together as a family and could be expanded on if more posters were made.
