Baskerville is an iconic and timeless typeface with much history, when tasked with creating
a type study specimen I looked to history to find inspiration for a unique and beautiful visual experience.
When working on our type specimen we were
asked to research the typeface and the history
and find aninteresting fact to develop our theme
for the specimen. When working with Baskerville I found that John Baskerville was inspired by Roman craved letter forms. With that I moved forward with experimenting with layouts and composisitions
The Final result
After working through issues, I came to the final 16
page specimen exploring the various weights, sizes,
and glyphs to create a unique and beautiful experience.
The final outcomes
A deep understanding of Baskerville
Found design inspiration in history and context though research
Learn about and used a historic ratios for layout design
