Type Mannerisms – Process work.

I’m nearing the end of Project 2: Type Mannerisms. Part 3 required that I use my chosen typeface, Baskerville, to express a word. I chose “explosive” and the attached PDF is what I came up with after a 30 minute charette. I didn’t quite make it to 25, the required number, and I realize it’s because I spent too much time making things clean & perfect. As Dan said, “work isn’t precious.” I’ve gotten too used to treating everything I make as the end goal, but I’ve discovered that when I destroy work & recreate it, it usually improves.
