Conclusion

This poster contains two typefaces. Sans serif and script can be differentiated by the look of the strokes, the first being typed and the second being handwritten. Sans serif means that there is no serif which is indicated by the lack of embellishments on the end of the letters. The contrast is found between the types of fonts in the title and the difference of size between the title and the context.
