Typography Infographic

An infographic of important sections of typography.

*2020 Silver ADDY Award Winner*

For this project I needed to create a poster that gives the most important things to know about type and typography in general. I decided to break them up sections into their own color blocks to give them their own importance. I had a difficult time with the colors I used because I chose 4 colors, but I think it ended up working in the end.

The main goal is that if this was given to someone who wasn’t a graphic designer, would this make sense? Would they be able to know what kerning is and the difference hierarchy in type makes?

Here are some cropped close ups of some sections, feel free to click on it to get a bigger view.
