Good Typography is Art

I discovered from the very start of this course how much fun letters and words are to play with. This exercise was early in our studies, before I had obtained Adobe’s Creative Suite. I was forced to discover much I didn’t know about Microsoft’s Word programme, experimenting with the ‘Wordart’ function, text boxes, transparency, PDFing a document to become an image…….but now I have Photoshop and Illustrator, so much more is possible.

Using typography this design illustrates a quote by the Master of Typography, Paul Rand.

The following ideas are some of my typography installation experiments.

  3. I’ve actually gone back to play with a bit of word art trying to get ideas for our current Logo Identity brief. Just playing with the letters is helping my thinking process.
