Johnston100 Poster by Monotype

A graphic poster, by Monotype, designed for Transport for London (TfL), to celebrate 100 years of the Johnston typeface and to introduce Monotype’s remastered version of the typeface, Johnston100. This poster formed one of 11, commissioned in a series by TfL to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of this most iconic of typefaces.

This poster design is based on an original type specimen from the Johnston archives, now set in Monotype's remastered version, Johnson100.

Each glyph in the specimen, which features the distinctive diamond-shaped tittle, has been highlighted in a fluorescent orange, calling to the bright orange overalls worn by maintenance teams on the London Underground tracks.
