Typography And Their Superhero Representations

Minnesota-based graphic designer, Matthew Olin believes there is a connection between typography and superheroes.

In his illustrated series called ‘Superhero Typographic Classifications’, he pairs various fonts together with famous superheroes—dissecting their unique characteristics and drawing similarities between the two.

Describing his project, Olin says “…we can draw analogies between the elements of design and those of superheroes in an attempt to create clarity, educate and inspire.”

“In doing so, we can champion our profession as leaders in organizing chaos and creating change in an informed word,” Olin adds.
