Periodic Table of Typefaces

Periodic Table of TypefacesThe Peri­od­ic Table of Typefaces is a fant­ast­ic visu­al­isa­tion of 100 of the most pop­u­lar, influ­en­tial and notori­ous typefaces avail­able.

Grouped by fam­il­ies and classes of typefaces ((sans-)serif, script, glyph­ic, grot­esque, etc.), each ‘ele­ment’ lists the design­er, the year designed and a rank­ing of 1 through 100.

Sites used to cal­cu­late the rank­ing:

    Thanks Lloyd for actu­ally read­ing how the design came about! I’ve been see all sorts of com­ments ask­ing “why isn’t Arial on here” and “why is it arranged that way?” by folks that obvi­ously did­n’t see or read the copy that ori­gin­ally went along with the design. Such is the inter­webs right?

    But any­way, thanks again! I appre­ci­ate it.

    Cam, thanks for tak­ing the time to vis­it and com­ment.

    The idea is great and I love the groupings—it’s a pity that some oth­ers did­n’t look at it closer to dis­cov­er the little details… they’re the bits that make the dif­fer­ence, right? As you say, such is the inter­webs!
