Faces with type

Category : Fun Graphic Design, Typography September 20, 2013

This is a project from my University days. Everyone in my class was assigned an area of type to explore and to develop a piece of design based on it. I was given foreign characters. I decided to have some fun with this so I made a collection of various foreign characters such as umlauts, accents etc. I then pieced them together to make faces, stereotypical foreign faces that is. Whether or not I just insulted people by suggesting foreigners look like this, who knows. For every character that I used within the creation of the typographic face it features next to the face with a description about its use and origin.
