These are the posters I promised I’d post but forgot! Like I explained in my last post I had eight fonts and eight designers quotes to illustrate and these where my final outcomes that I am very pleased with.
Gill sans. This is one of my favourite designs I created. I added lines underneath the text to make it look like the text was dripping like wet paint relating to the end of the quote ‘never dries’ I think it looks really effective and to the point.
Helvetica. This is probably my favourite font as you can do almost anything with it. I was playing around with the layout when I created this using the quote ‘I shop therefore I am’ joining the letters together making it almost look like a belt or a watch or even an escalator within the design.
Caslon. I created this idea on the way the quote sounded in my head, changing the word ‘work’ into italic so the person reading it will emphasise the word when they read it. I made the word ‘play’ bold also to emphasise it so the reader compares the two words ‘work’ and ‘play.’ I also made the background a fun colour to relate to the word play.
Futura. Psychedelic was a hard quote to illustrate because it is so short and too the point, so i decided to think about what psychedelic was and what I thought about it and the first thing that came to my mind was colour and spirals. I then decided to play with this idea leaving the text alone and created this design.
Baskerville. This is also another favourite, I emphasised the word will making it italic and blue because the word stood out when I heard it.
Didon. I also changed the kerning on the words ‘simple’ and ‘complicated’ in this design; simple is spread out to look simple and complicated is squashed together to look complicated.
Copperplate gothic bold. I have highlighted the word own in white to emphasise the point of the quote; think of your own ideas not copy someone else’s, I have also changed the kerning to spread the word out.
Garamond. I basically just played around with this idea putting words on angles to look broken and changed the word misbehave to red because it was the first colour that came to mind when I heard the word.
