Types of People

What type of person are you? That question can actually be interpreted in two different ways. Types of People is a series of typographic posters designed by me that anthropomorphises typefaces and re-imagines them as, well, different types of people.

So the next time someone asks you just what type of person you are, you can say that you’re totally a Gotham. Or a Helvetica. Just don’t ever be a Comic Sans.

Type #1: Helvetica

Type #4: Comic Sans (gulps)

Designer’s note: I actually spent quite a great deal of time trying to make the Comic Sans poster not look ugly, and eventually decided that it’s best to keep the ‘C’ letter only partially visible. Kinda like how selfies only highlight the best sides of our faces, no?
