One of the great things about taking courses in Graphic Design at Anne Arundel Community College is the tangential things they get you into. Of course Typography is an important part of design work, but I didn’t know I had an affinity for it until I took the class. I started a new font at work the other day! This is an exercise in hierarchy, we were given the text and asked to arrange it in a pleasing manner. I used Goudy Stout Regular for the headings and Goudy Standard Extra Bold for the main text. The choice of color was made to be as eye catching as possible.
Simple Logotype, varying the fonts between each tag. The women’s uses Bernhard Fashion BT, the men’s western wear uses Mesquite Std, and the childrens uses Goudy Heavy Face Std. The Logotype uses New Baskerville Standard to give a formal look and increase the sarcasm.
Just used some of my tools and scanned them into my computer.
I used Gill Sans for this and traced the words by hand. I like the fourth and last ones because I think they communicate best the lethal nature of this substance.
I’ve had my share of both in my life. The first one shows the feeling you get when the bottom drops out of everything, whereas the second one shows the giddy feeling of elation. Cut and paste, just like the old days!
In this one I was trying to seperate the first and last paragraphs from the paragraphs on the individual designers. I used left alignment. In the third one I’ve used italics to further distance the designers paragraphs from the opening and closing ones.
Slight revisions to the G, Q, N and V after staring at this for several weeks. I think this has a modern, robotic look.
