Typography

On Thursday’s creative thinking session we were given a list of eight fonts and a list of eight designers quotes; we had to randomly pick one of each and create a design on illustrator using every one of them. I found the task hard at first to basically layout the text but when I started changing the Kerning and the thickness of the fonts it became much easier to make it look more like a design not a page with some text on it.
After we did this task we were given eight designers and had to guess which quote belonged to who; to be honest I barely knew any of them that’s why I am enjoying this task because it is familiarising me with these important designers I should know. After we finally matched up the designers with the quotes we had to pick one of the designers each to research and do a presentation on -for the following week- we also have to create a design in that designers style using the quote they said. I’m happy with my choice which is Saul Bass, because after researching him I really like his work.
I will post again tonight with my eight designs.
