PROJECT: “A designer should only use five typefaces: Bodoni, Helvetica, Times Roman, Century, and Futura.” –Massimo Vignelli. Use the five essential typefaces to create compositions and put it together into a zine. Think of a concept you might want to convey in this project.
VISION: My concept for this zine was comparing type to men. I categorized men into five different types: Futura, Helvetica, Bodoni, Times Roman, and Century. Then I created biographies for each typeface designer, similar to a dating profile. Each typeface was characterized by what I felt best suited their design. I wanted the project to be fun and memorable so I chose a relevant topic that I believe most people would find to be intriguing.
