About the project

This piece is a Specimen of the typeface Martin, by Vocaltype, inspired by signs held during the Memphis Sanitation Strike. This piece hinges on the theme of diversity and history. My design intent was to make it thought provoking and induce a desire to learn more about the time period and the political and judicial injustices. I created a dust jacket and a newspaper specimen for this brief.
