FUTURA - 12 visions of the legendary font

Under the direction of Michel Wlassikoff and in the class of Bernard Baissait "typography in usage", the 4th year graphic design students of ESAG Penninghen, Paris, were invited to develop a reflection about Futura. Michel Wlassikoff published in May 2011 a book about it (with Alexandre Dumas De Rauly) which stood the role of basis for this research led by the students about the history, the shape, the uses of this modernist font. Then they presented a work, solo or in group, with a total freedom about the choice of medias.
