My illustrations with typefaces.

↑ Gill Sans, an example of quintessentially early 20th century British elegance and innovation, has turned into a boy wearing a trucker cap. It all started from the famous lowercase g, used as a pair of glasses ("A pair of spectacles", Eric Gill), a figure that reminded me of a pimply nerd. Although Helvetica has a history of rigor and composure within typography, in an attempt to turn that into a human figure, it came out an elegantly dressed woman, seemingly at a wedding, who is chatting on the phone.
↑ The further characters originated from Baskerville and Futura appear to correspond more closely to their original typographical identities. Baskerville boasts that fine mixture of elegance and exuberance which is typical of a British nobleman. Futura is the first font reaching the Moon in 1969 and symbolises that modernity seeking a geometric and totally designed world.
↑ Cooper Black doesn't allow many solutions because of its round and thick shapes, but as soon as I've "seen" a boxing glove, the image has appeared quite on its own. Blanch, used by Picame Magazine in its own logo, has got characters with a very vertical and narrow structure without many variations, but finally the L and the J have suggested to me the face of a Hipster.
