There was a time when a type director’s wall was a constant source of typographical inspiration for art
directors working in advertising agencies. You would find hanging on these walls some type specimen
sheets supplied by the leading type foundries of the day, along with samples of how these typefaces could
be used for an ad campaign or a design project. With the advent of the desktop computer though, most of
those inspirational walls disappeared. Therefore, the type director presents his “Type Director’s Wall.”
