Type Specimen

Type Specimen

 

 It is a type specimen booklet talks about the history of Gills Sans and how it can be applied in a certain situation.

Gill Sans has been used as the main typeface for the London Underground for a long history. It is a great typeface for transportation with a bold body and clear stroke, and it helps people easily recognize the written contents of the location and traffic signs. For the color options, I use a contrast color blue and orange to give my audience a strong visual effect. Besides, I use graphic elements to create a sense of speed.
