Type Specimen Book

I picked Univers as the font I wanted to focus on for this type specimen project. Initially, I tried to stay away from the obvious outer space theme that was begging to be designed. But about halfway through my process, I realized that it needed to be done. I realized that even if I'm choosing a more obvious answer to a design problem, it doesn't mean it has to be a static and boring design. I tried to take the expected and make it interesting and unexpected by being influenced by the retro time period the font was designed in too.
