Bodoni Type Specimen

Following the brief set by ISTD for their 2014 Student Competition, I explored the ITC Bodoni typeface by using a quote from the original designer, Giambattista Bodoni. By utilising the letterforms at large and small scale the versatility and beauty of the typeface can be seen.

The hits of dark blue and bright green give the booklet some depth and show how the typeface works in colour. Being a more traditional format it allows the user to appreciate the aesthetics of Bodoni and follow the quote through the different pages, engaging with the italic, bold and regular weights.
