I am a graphic designer and professor teaching graphic design. I give my designing with type class 24 typefaces they must know before they leave my class (12 serif and 12 sans serif). I thought it would be interesting to see what typeface you all think are the essential 24 typefaces to learn.
Here are the ones that I have given them:
Serif: Bembo, Bodoni, Caslon, Century Schoolbook, Sabon, Scala, Clarendon, Garamond, Meridian, Mrs. Eaves, Trajan, and Baskerville
Sans Serif: Akzidenz Grotesk, Avenier, Century Gothic, DIN, Franklin Gothic, Frutiger, Futura, Helvetica, Interstate, Neutra, Scala, and Univers
Let me know your thoughts.
