Periodic Table of Typefaces
I was browsing the internet and saw this. I thought it was really funny since typography is so important to graphic designers, they have invented a Periodic Table of Typefaces. Many scientists have the Periodic Table of Elements to help them so why not make a Periodic Table of Typefaces to help out all the designers out there. Although this is not as practical as the Table of Elements for scientists it still is a clever way of putting together all the different fonts that designers might be working with. I really like how each typeface is typed out in its correct font so you can see how different they are from each other. They all have different weights, strokes and thicknesses while some are more scripty, serif or sans-serif fonts. This is definitely a fun way to look at the fonts we see and use on an everyday basis!
