So many things…

I have been so wicked busy this term that I haven’t had time to post all the homeworky-goodness from spring term so far! Lets start with Typography, shall we? There is not a lot I Scan say about this. It is the study of typefaces: history, anatomy, classification.

Everything from the first few weeks was done by hand, so I will have to scan them in later. It was fun, I had to design my own monogram and personal ambigram. Next, we had to create or recreate concrete poetry, modeled after Guillaume Apollinaire’s calligrammes. Beauty, eh? I like the pony one. So, I decided I wanted to make a word bonnet and found the poem Black Bonnet, by Henry Lawson.

This week’s assignment was to choose a typeface and make a poster for it. We had to include upper and lower case letters; indicate at least two points of type anatomy; include a brief history/description of the designer and typeface; 11×17; allowed one color beyond black and white.

Next up… Final Cut Pro!
