Assignment 10: Typography project (without other graphics) due 10/20

Post  Admin on Thu Oct 15, 2015 10:21 am

Directions:
1. Using one of your favorite quotes, design a poster or postcard with the quote - using at least one path for the text.
2. Use the typography itself as the design element. (No extra graphics or photos allowed!)
2. Post your final image here.
3. Explain how your font selection and placement helps to convey the mood of the quote.

There are some very nice examples here - although they incorporate graphics as well (which we will do in the next project): http://denielleemans.com/expressive-arabic-typography/#!prettyPhoto/0/

Grading Rubric: 3 points total

1 point: Use of typography to convey mood
1 point: Use of paths to place the text
1 point: Overall aesthetics

The words are in the shape of a portrait of Lidia Zamenhof, the daughter of Ludwig Zamenhof, the quoted person. I used Courier New as the typewriter feel captures the time era along with the rather stuffy and almost rapturous mood of the poem.

It's the ring inscription from Lord of the Rings, and it's in the shape of the One Ring

My font selection and placement helps convey the mood of the quote because the variety of fonts show that I put effort into this typography and I didn't just choose one font.

With the text for the plane, I tried changing the color of some of the words to give it more of a distinguishable shape. Without the red coloring, its just a white blob.

I wanted the font to be simple, not anything too fancy because this is clearly not a deep, philosophical quote or anything. I made the background a dark, dull purple as a more depressing color since the quote doesn't exactly have a happy vibe behind it. The blue color is supposed to make the smaller, loopier text look like a drinking glass. The white text has varied font sizes and falls in a sloppy, all-over-the-place pattern to look like spilt milk.

I used the glow and the black background to make it a sort of moon/stars for the night sky

These are lines from a speech from this character - Sans - and the text is meant to make up his face. The text is Sans-Serif. ;D

My font selection, which was a more formal, cursive-like font that allows the curves of the eye to flow. Since the quote I picked is "You can observe a lot by watching", I wanted to be able to convey it through an eye which has the one function of observing and watching. So, I shaped the main quote as the iris. I used the word "watching" to make the pupil, since that's how we see. I used the word "eye" to make the white parts of the eye and the tear ducts. Then, I used "eyelash" to make the eyelashes of the eye.

My font selection
for sunshine i put a thick font for "hey summer!" or basically the sun using the colors to help along.
For night I used a slightly fancy font which has a bit of thickness to make it seem smooth.
For the letters in between I wanted to convey some formal like font to balance both of the moods

The water represents the first part of the quote and the sun represents the last part.

The quotes in the background explain abut how a comet and its journey around the solar system. The quotes on earth explain about life that thrive on the blue planet.

the font is 85, Maiandra GD Regular. Also the quote "adults are just outdated children" it fits to the picture because its a young child and an adult holding hands which to me just says no matter young or old you are still the same.

My quote is, "The apple cannot be stuck back on the Tree of Knowledge; once we begin to see, we are doomed and challenged to seek the strength to see more, not less." -Arthur Miller


3. I used a willow tree to help convey this quote because in quite a few cultures the 'Spirit of the Willow' or the willow tree is considered to be very old and wise. Also the willow's appearance makes the project look better.

Since this is a quote from Alice in Wonderland, I chose to make this image as light and as odd as possible. This quote in particular reminded me of the mad hatter, who I believe said the quote first or at some point in the story/movie Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Caroll. So, I first lined up the phrase in the shape of a bright green top hat (in honor of Disney's cartoon version of the Mad hatter of Alice in Wonderland, 1951)
for the background I made little swirls of red and black, signifying the checkered patterns sometime seen in that movie as well.
As far as font goes, I made sure to make them all different types. To give the image the feel of madness and confusion. As those two elements were portrayed the most throughout the film.

The quote:
"Why is a raven like a writing desk? Because what is forward is never backward. A raven is 'nevar' backwards and a writing desk is always for words" -Lewis Caroll (author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland)

I was feeling very nostalgic and decided to choose a quote from the American Girl Addy series. The heart is there to symbolize love and the cold colors are to give off a little bit of a dark mood.
