The Periodic Table Of Typefaces.
Cam Wilde of Squidspot created a Periodic Table for typeface addicts.
The ‘Periodic Table of Typefaces’ is designed in style of Period Table of Elements posters hanging up in schools and printed in science books all over the world.
Featuring 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces of today. The table groups the typefaces into families and classes of: sans-serif, serif, script, blackletter, glyphic, display, grotesque, realist, didones, garalde, geometric, humanist, slab-serif and mixed.
Each cell also states the symbol of the typeface, the designer, the year it was designed, and the rank of the typeface—based on the rankings of various sites.

“Daily Dishonesty is a hand-lettering blog I started during my senior year of college. It combines my love of typography, humor, copywriting, and illustration. The blog documents the lies I tell myself on a regular basis. Hopefully, you’re guilty too and can have a good laugh! “
I’m an art director and illustrator based in New York City. My work covers many aspects of design, from branding to wedding invitations. I enjoy finding a balance between intricate details and simple forms. When I’m not designing, you can find me in my school’s silkscreen lab or waiting in line at Trader Joe’s.
