Saturday, January 24


I have just finished my second week in my Typography class. It's going well and I'm enjoying the work so far. These classes always gets more fun as the weeks progress. I have three assignments due each week; first are ten thumbnails coinciding with the particular project speculations, then we have a rough draft of one and a final draft.

Here is my final draft from the first week. It is a couple of words including any serif and sans serif font and labels the anatomy of type.

Sara's design is a class act that works solely and successfully with type. She utilizes black ink to enhance the style of the serif and sans serif typefaces. The diagram labels are informative and clear.

For next week we had to submit ten thumbnails for a poster type design and enlarge the first letter to bleed off of the page. We were also only allowed to use one color. The negative space is supposed to cause visual confusion in some cases. Below are my ten thumbnails for next week's projects. There are a few that I do not like at all, but it was tough to come up with ten different designs, so a few are just thrown together. (Hey, ideas count as ideas - good or not! :o} )

Please help me by letting me know which one or two are your favorite and maybe even why you think it is that it appeals to you.

  1. I like the 3rd on top of the page. That one just appealed to me for some reason.

  2. I like that one too, Mom. I'm having a difficult time picking one. I keep going back and forth. Oh well... I'll make a decision tonight when I work on my next draft for tomorrow. Thanks for the input though, I truly appreciate it!

  3. I like the bottom one on the left :) and the one with the old G, it would work well if it's old paintings in the art gallery


Thanks for commenting ~~~ I'm always interested to hear what you have to say!
