I Graduated!

I now have my B.F.A in Art with a Concentration in Photography!  I graduated  in 2015 and since I have started my Entrepreneurship journey.

I was Graphic Design major and I decided to change it after I took this Typography class that this blog was originally created for.  I realized that Photography was more suited for me.

Book Process

First I did the layout on InDesign of how I wanted my book and printed it out.

 

I pasted all of the cut out pieces and pasted it on my blank paper.

 

 

After I pasted all of the little pieces on the paper I photocopied it and made it into a book.

Type Funnies

I was researching about typography when I cam upon this word, “Keming”  I thought of kerning immediately and thought it was either a typo or it was a word I never learned.  I saw this post and I got the joke.

Project 4

I dont really know what Project 4 is, but right now I’m looking up 2 words and their definition.  My words are Destruction and Energetic.

 

 

Here is some of my research:

Destruction

Definition: The state or fact of being destroyed. Ruin

My definition: To destroy things

Source: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/destruction

Things that describe destruction:

Fire

Chaos

Death

Destroy

Picture examples:

Energetic 

Definition: The state or fact of being destroyed. Ruin

My definition: To destroy things

Source: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/destruction

Things that are energetic:

Electricity

Children

A happy person

Clown

Cartoons

 

 

 

I’m guessing the end product is supposed to look something like this

Fictional letterforms pt 3

The final process I have to go through is digitizing my sketches.

 

This part is really hard because I have to create a letter that will fit into the family and look believable.  Though I feel that some of the letters that I made were believable, they weren’t technically correct.

Fictional Letterforms Pt.2

The next part of this project I had to analyze different parts of my font family.  I drew 30 thumbnails of the parts of the letterforms that interested me the most.

The font I chose to analyze is Utopia.

I noticed that in my Font family there are serifs and thick and thin lines.  All letters are geometrical and structured.

Aleksander Mikhailovich Rodchenko

Aleksander Roschenko was a Russian artist who expressed himself through photography, sculpture, and graphic design.  From what I seen in alot of his work with graphic design, he creates ads that are geometrical and have basic coloring like black, white, and red.  With his photography, I could tell he was interested in people and where they went and the things that they did.
