A Historic Outline of Typeface Design

Throughout history, typeface designers have made invaluable contributions to typography, but they and their works are seldom recognized or acknowledged. People take the typefaces they designed for grant, and tend to forget how difficult it is to create an entire font or font family.

By making this historic timeline poster, I tried to,

record the typeface designers and their great talents, skills, patience and tenacity.
visualize how typeface designers are influenced by techno logical developments. The typefaces they made are true to the times they were made from letterpress to phototype to digital type.
