 In my Typography I course at Doane University we were asked to create a type specimen of a typeface assigned to us. We were to research when the typeface was created, who created it, and the classification it fell under. As with any type specimen, all text needed to be displayed in the given type and showcase its different uses. Univers LT STD is a neo-grotesque sans serif typeface. It has a clean, geometric quality that was rather versatile. I showcased this versatility by using lines and shapes consistent with the Swiss Style because that style was prevalent when the typeface was designed.
