FUTURA type study

A typographical study of the Futura typeface. Futura is a geometric sans-serif typeface first designed in 1927, but it's use of clean lines and proportions convey a look that is simultaneously timeless and modern. It also has the distinction of being the first typeface on the moon, as it was used for the plaque left behind on the moon by the Apollo astronauts. Playing on this theme, I constructed a lunar landing scene using nothing but glyphs from the Futura family of typefaces.
