I found the Fonts in Use website (shared by a teacher from another class) helpful in seeing type being used in everyday examples. The site allows you to search by industry, format (e.g. film/video) and typeface of how a specific typeface has been used. The site has helped bring some typefaces to life for me. Instead of only seeing the typeface being listed in a drop down menu in an Adobe application, I can actually see the impact that a specific typeface has through its application, such as on a book cover.
