This study is to investigate the type analysis and visual characteristics of typography on the posters based on Hangeul in recent years. The study was limited to the National Hangeul Museum and analyzed Hangeul typography posters used for promotional exhibitions from 2014 to 2019. For analysis of Hangeul typography, the types are classified into Serif type, Sans-serif type, Calligraphy type, Hunminjungeum type, and Complex type to compare the ratio of the totalization of Hangeul typography to the limited poster space, and the visual characteristics were derived by the direction of typesetting. As a result, the frequency of Hangeul typography posters of the National Hangeul Museum has been steadily increasing, starting from 2014 to 2019, and the frequency of Hangeul typography has increased around the Serif type and Sans-serif type. It shows that the ratio of totalization to the poster space occupied by the exhibition title using typography has increased.
