Minnesota-based designer Matthew Olin created a series of superhero typographic posters for his MFA Thesis exhibition entitled Some Type of Hero. Olin chose fonts whose characters reflected the characteristics of the superheroes we know and love, and then recreated them in these eye-catching posters.

The most distinguishing factor of any font is its characters. Hidden beneath these characters, each typeface also has character—its own unique characteristics. However classified this information may seem, when used correctly, typefaces often speak to us more powerfully than the words that are written with them.
