type archives

A typography project which preserves traditional graphics and sees time invested in becoming a reference point for creating design with an aged aesthetic.

This was a completely selfish project in the sense that it was in my own interest to pursue these graphics, harvest them and learn what I can in order to better my own work. I also treated the time creating this modest archive as an opportunity to work on my own typographic skills and create a tailored layout.

For my final year project, I have researched a wide range of graphics from various fields of vintage design, from crayons and cigarette packaging in the early 20th century, to graphics based off pennant flags from vintage paint cans. This project is a unique, personalised reference point which can be utilised to inspire designs with a certain timeless look.
