GEORGIA

Challenge: Create a type specimen poster advertising a system typeface.
Course: Introductory Typography
Materials: Digital

I have strange tastes in typefaces and a big space in my heart for the underdogs, so when we were prompted to create a type specimen for a system font, I wasn't all that interested in representing Futura or Didot, but rather a typeface that designers often overlook. I've always thought Georgia was a sweet, gregarious, pleasant-on-the-eyes suite of fonts, and with the release of new weights via Georgia Pro, I wanted to do a little something to celebrate it.
