The great typographer – portrait series
Many don’t realize that each typeface we encounter in our day-to-day lives is a result of a very intricate creative process, that requires considerable effort on the part of it’s designer. Yet, the hallmark of any great typeface is humbleness: when you aren’t even aware of it while reading, then it’s good. That is the conflict I wish to resolve by raising awareness of the world of typography. I wish to pay my respect to the great masters by capturing their likeness in a series of portraits, composed of the very typefaces they brought into existence.
