Process //

When presented with a type specimen assignment, I was given a list of typefaces to chose from. I wanted to challenging myself with a typeface that I was not used to; one that I rarely used and one that could only be used with certain treatments - unlike Helvetica or Futura. I accepted the challenge with Bodoni.

My research led me to discover the branding of the timeless angsty punk band, Nirvana, was made with this typeface. Album art and posters soon inspired me to take on this clear elegant typeface with a collaged, photo vs. type approach.
