With the specimen booklet, I wanted to showcase Adrian Frutiger’s iconic Univers while also creating a narrative that tied together copy and visual content on the level of the individual page and the booklet as a whole. The Univers specimen, highlighted by space-themed presentations of type, thus takes the viewer on a visual journey through the typeface’s own universe, from its creation to its characteristics to its impact on design. Each spread is meticulously crafted exclusively from type, with the cover featuring over 4000 layers in its depiction of the Univers.
