Student Project: FF Imperial

Student Project in cooperation with Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft, Berlin, 2006


Usually, a designer looks for a suitable typeface for a given text. The students of the third semester in communication design at the HTW changed this approach for their semester project with Prof. Jürgen Huber so that the question now was: which text fits to my typeface?


Different texts for the FontFonts thus making very different books: from manually sewed book about fashion design to the leaded short story collection by Edgar Allan Poe. From oversized book of folded paper planes to the classic “Animal farm” bound in cloth and in a suitable slipcase. Here FF Imperial by Donald Beekman has been chosen.
