Type Experiments

Typography & Experiments

Project Time: 5 Weeks
Role: Design & Art direction

Class: GR 613
Instructor: Tracy Merchant
Year: Fall: 2021

In this assignment, I will communicate meaning with type. To do this I will choose a word or a sentence from a supplied list. I will investigate how to create, manipulate, and form type to communicate the meaning of the words I have chosen using only letter forms and without supporting imagery.

I decided to push myself out of my comfort zone by exploring different physical mediums. I learned a lot of new techniques and skills from this process. The reward is not the result but the process of exploring new things. Sometimes I found that allowing for accidents to occur is a part of experimentation. It may turn out better than I thought.
