First Warning Typeface Specimen Poster


The National Weather Service utilizes an outdated and difficult-to-read typeface to publish weather information and emergency warnings.


The First Warning typeface and associated materials condense a semester of knowledge from Anderson University’s graphic design class “Typography” into a single work, while serving to solidify the “function before form” concept. The final work is a unique typeface to be used by the National Weather Service to issue weather warnings.
