I’ve been working on my proposal for Typography project 4, which looks at typographic design from a given decade. My designated decade was 1940-50.
After doing a lot of research, I’ve decided to go with three areas of content for the poster which will comprise the final submission. The first is the Swiss Typographic Style/International Typographic Style; the Phototypesetter machine, and the Trade Gothic typeface by Jackson Burke.
I’ve organized the content for the proposal into a few pages, which includes some initial sketches of the poster design. Hopefully I can develop this in the coming weeks!
