Superhero Typographic Posters by Matthew Olin



We can draw analogies between the elements of design and those of superheroes in an attempt to create clarity, educate and inspire. These elements, primarily the use of symbol, color and typography, have the power to communicate with an audience far beyond the surface level. The most distinguishing factor of any font is its characters. Hidden beneath these characters, each typeface also has character—its own unique characteristics.

Minnesota-based designer Matthew Olin created a short series of eye-catching  typographic superhero posters for his MFA Thesis exhibition entitled Some Type of Hero. When used correctly, typefaces often speak to us more powerfully than the words that are written with them. Listed below are the beautiful results. Enjoy!
