Type Specimen Book | Helvetica



Fall 2019
Typography I
8" × 8"


For this project, I made a type specimen book for Helvetica. Since Helvetica was designed by a Swiss designer, I wanted to relate my concept to Switzerland and its federal train system.

By using the map that is inspired by the map of Lugano to Milano, follow the trail. Travel through the history of Helvetica to its anatomy, and how it is used in different text sizes.

I finished the project by using spiral binding and cutting the edges to be round.
