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.”
