Clarendon Typeface Infographics

Three typeface infographics posters that I designed for my typography class. The first one sybolizes the aspect of Clarendon being predominate in wanted posters during the Wild West Era. The second poster symbolizes the idea of making the typeface predominate in the 1900’s on national park service and trafficsigns. The third is a free choice using the typeface in a classical piano scheme during the 1920’s using the only colors black and white.
