Constructing a Cube

Filed under: Typography I — Mia @ 10:36 pm

Our typography assignment was to construct a 4″ cube that expressed the idea of a single word from a list of twelve choices. I chose the word, “imply.” I used Gestalt principles that consider the viewer’s ability to mentally fill gaps left by negative spaces. With only a few strokes, dots, or broken lines, the word is implied. Positive and negative shapes also imply my daughter’s silhouette.

The three digital images are of a practice cube. I experimented with cutting out shapes and lining the cube with red paper. I used that idea for the final iteration. The project print file was printed on gloss photo paper.
