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.”
