Julian Hansen

Julian Hansen is a young danish graphic designer, recently graduated from the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Copenhagen. This project, which sort of looks like a mind map or flowchart around the idea that "you need a typeface" is quite clever. The question is , how do you choose one that works? Most beginners have the hardest time choosing an appropriate typeface for their layouts as there is no real recipe for that, so perhaps this poster will help some. I would say that whichever you choose it's got to be legible and it should enhance the overall design. Most designers limit their palette of typefaces to a dozen or less, and as the saying goes: "Less is more."
