Type with Intent

Filed under: Typography I — Mia @ 8:07 pm

We met this afternoon for our final Typography I class. These are the last of my assignments. The goal was to create a specified effect with type. The 3-D experiment used Illustrator’s extrude feature to imitate a layout I created in Google Sketchup.

Three days from now, our class gallery exhibition begins. This is the preliminary set-up as I work on the book that will be placed on the music stand. The orchestra light is the support for the webcam, and the installation workstation will be covered by a sheer curtain that diffuses the lamp light and is blown by the fan.

March 22, 2011 Solidarit├ęs International rolled out a campaign on World Water Day. I made three gifs from their campaign video.
