Desk researched Futura's history, designer, formation and analyzed all the alphabet, number, special characters. This shows how I investigated the font and inspired by it. I made a note of examination at OHP films and scanned them. Also, I took pictures to make a poster.

Futura is based on geometric sans-serif such as a circle, triangle, rectangle which is effected from Bauhaus. This inspired me to make the 2nd poster. This poster used hand-made acryl shape objects.

Futura formed symmetrically. So, I divided it into a different color and printed in tracing paper. Overlayed it and printed it for the 3rd poster. After finishing this, I cut each letter, folded them, and printed them again to show the characteristic of symmetric.
