Expressive Typography

The second project of this course involves the explicit consideration and application to the principles of hierarchy and alignment. We are charged with the focus on the expressive nature of typography by making use of (and only) our hand.

This project uses the same text as the one used in the previous project, Typographic Space. The focus of this project is on the emotions & feelings of your text to construct an expressive typography composition. One should aim at how text can be readable and legible via shape and design. 

You can use the same text as project 1 or choose a new one i.e. short poems, nursery rhyme, kid’s book, etc. I picked the text provided by my professor, Vogue with a focus specifically on the movie The Big Lebowski. 

A link is provided to the pdf version of the final project with it containing a design rationale.
