The Letter “A”

Typography poster that explores the different faces of the letter “A”. YSDN Typography 2, 2018.

As I was sketching out my concepts, I explored the idea of layers and how that could play into this piece. The idea of cards came to mind which explains why there’s an upside down lowercase ‘a’ in the corner of the green rectangle with the statement ‘A’.


I find the letter ‘A’ to be interesting as it comes in different looks in each case. Most notably, the lowercase of the letter is often presented in two distinct looks. I tried to best reflect that contrast in my poster through the different typefaces chosen.
