These two type specimen posters were created for my typography class. This project was fairly difficult for me. I had no problem coming up with designs, but I struggled in incorporating the history of the typeface in the design. After some more in depth research, I decided to highlight the fact that Gill Sans drew inspiration from the original typeface used for the London Underground. Therefore, the first design incorporates elements from a vintage map of the Underground system, and the second incorporates elements from the London Underground’s logo.
