“Finish what you start” by Andy Smith – this poster comes with the language saying “Finish what you start” which does indicated on the picture how creative its to transform a typeface building each panel to create a letter and at the same time it shows and ending of a illustration man showing that it finish what it start. I think the communication on this poster its clear and give us the imagination to illustrate a letter by using objects.


“The big fish fight” by Andy Smith – I like the creative of printed big fish creating every piece of seafood inside the drawing.

I like the way letters are used along with the drawings representing a swallowing characters from the seafood seems interesting as it gives detail to it and amazing how the wings are attached with a script.
The colour and the typography image gives a radiant combination.

Internet research – Poster

The first picture “Take a walk and see poster”  -> http://flickrhivemind.net/User/hkapeman/Interesting

It’s formed with a photo message using a kind of collage which looks simple but attracted it to it means that I would like to experience a bit of my own pictures to give the message of “Typographic walk along the strand”.

Second picture “Design walk poster” -> http://log.georgiougavrilakis.com/clients/design-walk/

Really interested me because seems a delicate poster to design using the typography  information “cut out”.  Gives me the idea to do something similar to my posters but instead of using the colour background use pictures that I took from the trip by using a combination of typeface by using “block baby teeth” made from Milton Glaser.

Third picture “Alphabet poster” -> http://www.graphicdirt.com/tag/typography/page/3/

It’s creative how each alphabet typeface it’s made by boxes of cardboard selecting different texture to give the right shape to the typeface. It looks like it’s used from the block baby teeth typography.

Fourth picture “x tra train poster” -> http://chloedunnedesign.typepad.com/cmyk/typography/

This work is from a talented Parisian designer, Philippe Apeloig I love how he tried to use like a hidden bits of typeface and reflected on vertical means it’s a way to show a different style and to understand what it means. The colour on each word gives an attraction to the poster which stand out and lets you visualise clear.

Fifth picture “Alphabet Photography poster” -> http://www.alphabetphotography.co.uk/product_posters.aspx

I know this a different style of poster from what I have chosen from the ones I got in here but on my project I have to use my photography as including typography but on this poster it made me want to explore a bit of imagination to do with my own photos and to transform a typeface. I think I could make it as black and white to show a bit of modern and historical moment of typeface.

Sixth picture “The shape of things to come poster” -> http://arkitipintel.com/2009/03/28/typographic-posters/

I like the idea how is cut out the bits of letters to transform a geometric typography using colours to define each letter and stands out, here is also another piece of creative using words with the “block baby teeth” typography where I have been inspired by Milton Glaser and love the fact that with his typeface can do lots of experiments as this poster.

Seventh picture “Hidden truth poster” -> http://christinakoehn.com/hidden_truth.html

This poster it’s more about contrast and spacing by hidden words to another to make it understand full,  using a vertical and diagonal form applying to the information.

The fact is that is communicating with words and the colours make it outstanding to show as the tittle says “Hidden Truth” is hidden.

Eighth picture “A stanley kubrick’s clockwork orange poster” -> http://vernsgraphicdesign.blogspot.co.uk/2010/11/graphic-design-ii-module-9-poster.html

I found this poster kind of interesting where it’s used the letter A as it looks a photograph inside the letter to expand the image and understanding about the poster.

As you can see this poster looks simple but at the same  but I like the way it’s used to combine the image to the first line of the title but I’m not quite sure it does match to the second and third title which doesn’t match with the white background.

Internet research – Typography

 

I really find it interesting how this typeface has been made in different ways as the first picture is the letter b in a 3D form with a luxurious material and using a well-defined object.

As the second photo there is ways to use typography using shapes by giving the message visually and using colors that combines all together and have the creativity of each shape contain a background pattern behind the letters which seems to be cut it and white drawing indicating the background the typeface “Century Gothic”
However in the third picture shows that you can use small things without being necessary to be great thing where is a combination of metals using screws, nails that you see them in doors, drawers etc. It looks to be transform a letter “M” as “Heavy Metal”.
The fourth picture shows a combination of the letter “P” in modern and historical typeface that looks delicate than the straight modern “P”.

I found this typeface that typography cannot only be a simple word to draw or use it does let you send the message through the design and gives you the visual communication.

Book research – Typography

Book: The art of Typography – 06 LUCAS DE GROOT 058|059

Number 2 – Shows an “a” typeface designed by Studio Dumbar in 20 years ago. This letter shows to be an Arial font.

As I will be working with the letter A as typography  I found this information how it started to create by allowing me to analyse the draw of the “a” and scanned for an illustration where it gives a perfection font as you can see the drawing is behind the actual illustration font.

This gives me an idea to produce my own ‘A’ Baby teeth font who I got inspired by Milton Glaser typographic font and then scan it to illustrator so I can define my typeface in a good standard.

Book: The art of Typography – The Roman print stone

At the section where it shows the typography A are referred by each typeface name by starting from the first one in the left font called “Futura Light” as it name is thinner and open and ending in fine point that comes to see how a single letter but well acurate.

The last two pictures it shows that typography can be drawn in a architectural design and be scaled into a position where can be printed or used as a building material.

I think typography involves in general as writing from computers to designing, posters, leaflets, logos, books, magazines, card designs

Book: The complete typographer by Will Hill “Second edition”

Display Typography poster

Right A robust sans serif type is set on a diagonal axis to create a dynamic composition of positive and negative forms in this poster by Sterotype Design.

The cropped letters demonstrate the principle that lowercase letters are recognized primarily by their upper section.

This poster is a combination of typeface between the size, width, color and size of the letter which shows the title of the organization.
It has a vibrant yellow colour that stands out the typography from the poster.

I think for me I wouldn’t choose those fonts because you can’t barely understand what it’s trying to say but at the same time it does combine with the texture of communication.

 

 

Book: The complete Typography “Second edition”.

“Trust me poster” by Jennifer Sterlin utilizes the highly legible but visually interesting Metal typeface in her innovative designs for Bhoss’s trust me CD and related literature.

I like the idea of this poster where indicates a direct message by using metal letters including letters under the printing metal image.

It also shows a mixed of typography using the bottom of the poster using a soft color kind of visible and a dark colour so stand the meaning of “trust me”.

Babyteeth Type face chart

The symbol of this chart typeface has been revolutionized over the time and created in different techniques used with materials, paper card, paint and objects which stands out for the main font called “baby teeth” created by Milton Glaser in the 60’s.

This picture gives me a good example of how to get an idea on how I would create my own font and create it in a modern experience.

First of all I would sketch some of my creations inspired by the “baby teeth” typeface. Then I would use colour or paint to see the differences of an idea and then scan it for a final illustration.

Typography example by Milton Glaser

 

Glaser typography called “baby teeth” as he said it’s “not a type designer” but he also was inspired from a photograph advertisement in Mexico City on Art Moderne printed materials and so Glaser started to invented his own typeface.

This has inspire me because I can see Glaser was a very observe person where he had his own ideas of starting to make his own fonts where he has  drawn and then he cut out the letters as a kind of illustration.
I would like to make a variation of typography using with different material or photography.

Variety of Typeface

These photos shows the typography from different parts containing the old and modern typeface.

Typography Structure

This is an example of Type Anatomy, where it shows the definition of stroke and the finer elements and terminals of the typeface structure between straight, vertical, horizontal, diagonal and rounded strokes (open, closed).

It’s really interesting how this definitions can help you out to design the right typeface as I would like to create my own typeface and give a design to it.

 

Inspiration poster

Bob Dylan

This poster was created  by Milton Glaser for inclusion in the Dylan’s greatest hits in 1967.

Milton Glaser inspires me with his entire design in a way how he used different conventions a striking image of Bob Dylan’s profile with streaming, multicoloured hair and typography.

On this poster Glaser was inspired by cut out paper silhouette self-portrait by Marcel Duchamps, which was a simple black and white profile,then Dylan’s hair its formed as bright colour Islamic painting.

It’s amazing how Milton Glaser did his own typography below the portrait saying “DYLAN” this typeface it’s called “baby teeth” created it by hand and did as the product of  graphic ideas.

Glaser used his own technique to transform a unique idea and the creative to combine one thing to another and makes it extensive.
