“Typography love”

Sara has a thing for type, which she manages to put across really well when speaking about it. She has given us this lecture once before, but hearing it again is definitely not a wasted time.

We’ve talked about the general ‘no-nos’, as well as examples of typography well used. Such as:

p1010007

p1010020

p1010022

After the lecture, we were supposed to choose a number of typefaces and use the text from our project to see how it looks written in that typeface. Here are my examples:

Sara is not impressed with this one…
There must be a hyphen in there…
No talking!
No talking!

We were then supposed to create a poster out of the typeface that we thought works the best. Here are the attempts I’ve done so far, However, I’m definitely not finished with them yet. It needs to be more readable, and the whole alignment is still at the experimentation stage:

First attempts.

Further experimentation (not too successful yet).

I will post an update when I’m finished with the poster.
