Peer Review Specimen Books

Darrel chose to make a type specimen book for Bodomi. I think that Darrel did a very effective job when designing this specimen book. By using yellow, black and white it helps to create an extreme contrast, allowing the typeface to truly stand out. It allows the viewer to focus on the simplicity of the font. I like how the design is very simple, allowing a lot of empty space. By allowing a lot of empty space, it helps portray the personality of the font. Something that helps the book to stand out is the size and shape of it. I think since it is smaller, and more rectangular it is a different way of looking at it, and gives the specimen book more personality like the typeface itself.
