A Life of Type

A Life of Type is a 28-page pamphlet about typefaces. I created this in September of 2018, and it describes my interactions with various typefaces that have influenced me as a designer. The final project was printed on 4.75” x 4.75” square pamphlets in full color.

 I included a quote on the back of the booklet from Robert Bringhurst’s  The Elements of Typographic Style , an essential design book I revisit often.

 Above is a shot of the interior with an excerpt I wrote about Montserrat, a typeface that has long since lost the little luster it had.
