Type Classification System Poster

When looking into type classification systems, you might realise how confusing they can be. Not only are there different classification systems, each with its own methods of categorising type differently, there are categories that are known by many different names. I decided to create an easy type classification system poster, focusing on one particular classification system (in this case the Vox classification system) to demonstrate each of the categories using examples, descriptions and highlights to show the main characteristics. By arranging the information in the form of a poster you are able to see how the categories compare to one another and see how different or similar the categories can be. Although type classifications systems are not necessary to design they are useful when researching typefaces and learning about the history and styles that you can use. Certain categories will also be more appropriate for what you are designing, and knowing what the characteristics are of these typefaces will help you identify appropriate fonts or similar typefaces that you could use.
